Faris Al-Sultan did his first Ironman of 2012 in the capital of Sri Lanka. Some parts of the race were pretty adventurous. It seems that the biggest challenge was to find the right course.
Faris had this problems too. But in the first discipline everything ran pretty well for him. He led the small pro field already in the water. Also on the bike it worked well for him. Together with the New Zealander Bryan Rhodes Faris increased the gap to the chasers. Here the orientation problems started. In the end Faris lost Rhodes but still changed on the second place to the run.
Faris run form is well after he had some great session with his teammates in Abu Dhabi. So he could overtake the New Zealander and won without any doubt with the fastest run split of the day.
After the awards he will fly back to Abu Dhabi. There is the official team training camp where he will support some amateurs. Faris next competition will be one of his main ones – the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon on March 3rd.
