Faris Al-Sultan - Ironman World Champion Faris now with pewag racing team

The phenomenon Faris Al-Sultan

Some observers have spotted the 35-year-old top triathlete in the pewag lounge at Klagenfurt. The first rumors startet a few weeks ago after the TRIMOTION and now it's official: Faris Al-Sultan, multiple Ironman winner and Ironman Hawaii champion, will start from now on for the Austrian pewag racing team.

Faris Al-Sultan, who was honored as the only triathlete with a Bambi and as Ambassador for the Bavarian sport, is regarded as a top sportsman within the scene and also outside of the triathlon family. He’s not too much in tactics, but someone who takes the competition in his hand. Short-term physical break-downs he can overcome and recover quickly. Within the pewag racing team Faris is "top of the pops" and that will push his teammates to even higher levels. We are very happy about this unique opportunity and welcome Faris in the world of pewag!
