The Spanish triathlete Marcel Zamora will seek his sixth victory in the Nice Triathlon this Sunday on the French Riviera, for which he will have to be the first to cross the finish line after 3,8 kilometers of swimming, 180 kilometers of bicycle and a marathon to foot.
"It is difficult to gauge the pressure I feel. On the one hand it is greater, since many people expect me to win and they think that it is getting easier when I have already won five times, and in fact it is just the opposite. Every year the level rises, people come more prepared, they watch me more, and ultimately you have to go faster to win, "explained the Spanish in statements provided by his press department.
Zamora, 33, first won this competition in 2006 and so far there has been no one capable of taking away his dominance. «This Ironman adapts very well to my characteristics. Nice has a somewhat different profile in the bicycle segment than most Ironmans and is better suited to a climber profile like mine, ”he analyzed.
