All the investment in time and money is necessary to organize a test of world magnitude and that is already having excellent results."

On the other hand, the Regional Director of South Europe and Middle East of Ironman Erwin Dokter Torres, believes in the success of the first edition of the Portuguese event. “It is a win to win situation because everyone benefits. There are excellent hotels, the people give all the necessary support, there is a close relationship with all the entities involved. “Everyone is very proactive, which represents a positive energy for the event”, explains Torres, satisfied with what he is seeing in Cascais. “In all areas of the organization's competence, we are seeing a perfect example!"

For Jorge Pereira, director of the organizing company 3 Iron Sports, “This is the sign that we are providing a great service to triathlon in Portugal, we are proud to have surpassed this world record" and adds: "We have the best conditions to welcome sports tourism in Cascais, not only for the date of the test, but for the whole year.
