Ivan Kharin: The "iron" distance is the best treatment for my body
Ivan Kharin, the prizewinner of the Ironman World Championship held in Hawaii, is to start at the "iron" distance on September 23. Ivan told IRONSTAR what caused the break in his performances after the success at the IRONMAN Hawaii 2016 and what plans he had for the race in Sochi.
— It took me the whole six months to realize that only triathlon gives me the energy to move forward! Reaching the peaks in triathlon I further develop myself in all aspects of life. I cannot live without IRONMAN, it is the style of my life, — confesses Ivan.
— For me, IRONSTAR 226 SOCHI is another challenge! Not only did I hear about the good organization of the IRONSTAR series, but I was convinced of this when I saw one of their starts with my own eyes. I can say with confidence that the IRONSTAR starts series is the best in the country and does not differ from the European analogs of IRONMAN.
— As for my performance on September 23, I just want to relax at the distance :) Any "Iron" is the best treatment for my body. I will be glad to see my friends, compete with strong athletes, and admire the capital of the Winter Olympic Games.
