#614: 2005 World Ironman Champion Faris al-Sultan

 

Faris al-Sultan(Arabic: فارس السلطان‎) is a German professional triathleteand the winner of the 2005 Ironman World Championshipin Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
 
Faris al-Sultan is known for his strengths in all three triathlon disciplines. In the running segment, he has a consistent but uncommon form of a long stride and loose arms, described as "looping." In competition, he typically wears a Speedoand half-singlet. His interest in triathlon was inspired by Thomas Hellriegel, a German triathlete.
 
During a recent trip to Dubai Faris gave us some of his time and in doing so not only provoked a number of thoughts for both Tom and I but I hope for you guys too.
 
Enjoy the show.
