vladimir savic set the new serbian ironman distance record at 9:13:26

serbian ironman distance record is very modest, but it is improving.

previous record of 9 hours 30 min 15 sec was set in ironman asutria 2011 by a svetlana brkic.

yes, the record was held by a woman, which was great.

in challenge copenhagen on 12 august 2012, vladimir savic improved it in to 9 hours 13 min 26 sec.

very happy that the serbian ironman record is slowly moving towards sub 9:00.

below are photos of vladimir’s experience:

it takes time to figure it out.
