Mayank Vaid has become the first Indian to complete the Enduroman - a triathlon from England to France which is considered to be one of the toughest endurance competitions in the world. Vaid is the 44th person in the world to have completed this triathlon. He is also the first Asian person to complete this triathlon in solo capacity.
Remarkably, Vaid has also broken the record for the shortest time taken to complete the ‘Enduroman – Arch to Arc’ triathlon. He completed the triathlon - involving running, swimming and cycling - in 50 hours and 24 minutes. The previous record for this triathlon was 52 hours and 30 minutes, held by Julien Deneyer of Belgium.
The triathlon starts with a 140 km run from London’s Marble Arch to Dover on the Kent coast, then a cross-Channel swim (shortest distance 33.8 km) to the French coast, and finishes with a 289.7 km bike ride from Calais to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Read More...
