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:
the day before.
vladimir and his coach, aleksandar.
vladimir was among the first out of the water.
starting the bike…
vladimir was running with wenke kujala for a while.
in front of copenhagen opera house.
finally over! :) the time shown is for the first group. vladimir was in the second group.
and the new serbian ironman distance record.
now we need to get the record under 9 hours, and then under 8:00 :)
step by step…
keep in mind, serbs are not so used to these long races.
it takes time to figure it out.
