Robert Karas is the current world champion in the Triple Ironman distance – swimming 11.4 km, cycling 540 km, running 126.6 km (three marathons). He’s also set the world record in the German Lensahn with a result of 30 hours, 48 minutes and 57 seconds.
There were 50 participants who took part in that race, and Robert beat the previous record by nearly an hour. In 2017, Robert set the world record in the double triathlon with a result of 19:44:33.
Before the Lensahn competition, Robert quoted Catalonian long-distance runner, high altitude skier, mountain cyclist, and duathlonist Kilian Jornet Burgada on his Facebook: “ The time to suffer has come, the time to fight has come, the time to win has come.”
Robert dedicated that competition to the most needy and encouraged his supporters to donate to various charity organizations.
