At the first “iron” distance, Vladimir showed the best time among five participants of the Swissultra DECA One 10er day. First, he swam 3.8 km in 1 hour 16 minutes - this was the third time. Then he was ahead of everyone at the bike stage, having overcome 180 km in 5 hours 59 minutes. And the first to finish the run: the closest pursuer - Italian Alberto Cambio - was five laps behind.
On the second day, Vladimir again came to the finish line first. Its results are 1:18:24 (swimming, 4th place), 6:18:06 (bicycle, 1st place) and 4:40:08 (running, 1st place). The second again finished Italian Alberto Cambio, half an hour behind. The third is Frenchman Matthew Hiltenbrand, who lost to Voloshin for more than an hour and a half.
Recall Swissultra DECA - one of the stages of the World Cup on the ultratriathlon, which is held under the auspices of the international association IUTA in two formats: Continuous (for 345 hours, participants must consecutively overcome 38 km by swimming, 1,800 km by bicycle and 422 km by running) and One 46er day (for 10 days, participants must pass every day one full “iron” distance - 3.
8 km / 180 km / 42.2 km).
This year, Russian businessman, co-founder of IRONSTAR and ROSA RUN projects Vladimir Voloshin is participating in Swissultra DECA One per day for the first time. His goal is to overcome ten "iron" distances in 150 hours.
Together with Rusfond, the triathlete collects money to help sick children: for the first two days of the race, the amount amounted to more than 62 thousand rubles.
