Het gelukzalige gevoel van Tristan Olij, die zijn Hawaii-droom ziet uitkomen

MAANDAG – En dan de beelden. Die misten we nog vanuit Cairns, maar Tristan Olij heeft zijn socials even aangevuld, zodat we mee kunnen genieten van die topprestatie en de felbegeerde slot voor Hawaii, die voor Nederlandse pro’s lang niet zo makkelijk te bemachtigen is.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
Qualified for the World Championships in Hawaii! 🌺
I had a good swim leg. I knew a small group would swim away and that they would be too fast. I came out of the water with the large second group.
On the bike, I stuck to my own plan. I knew I had to remain patient. 🏃‍♂️
I have worked hard on my running over the last few months and trusted in a good marathon. The first few kilometers felt so easy that I had to hold myself back from running too fast. I saw them fading ahead of me and kept believing I could secure a Kona spot. After 33 km, I moved into 5th place and still felt good. The last 4 km were a struggle against cramping in my hamstring, but luckily I had enough space to slow down a bit. Marathon pb: 2:42💪
Since I started with triathlon, it has always been my dream to race in Kona as a pro. Eight years ago, when I began triathlon, it seemed impossible, and now it has come true! Thanks to my coaches @guido.vroemen and @guidohartensveld 🙏
I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the past years. Without you, this would never have been possible!

Wilde in 1983 iets anders dan alleen hard fietsen, stapte snel over op microfoons uittesten, één van de drijvende krachten achter één van de oudste triatlons: Oud-Gastel, figureert in misdaadseries en mag zich ridder zonder paard noemen.
