eIn France, an extremist athlete cut his way from Paris to Mexico aboard his coach, thereby setting a new world record. After 23 days, Pascal Beach nearly crossed the finish line on Friday after covering a total of 10,477 kilometers at Fort de Nugent, near Paris.
During his standard drive, Pich rode his home coach every day from 6 am to 11 pm, only taking a quarter-hour break to eat. At night he slept next to his exercise machine.
The 57-year-old is a five-time world champion in triathlon, an endurance sport that combines swimming, cycling and long-distance running.
He doesn’t want to retire with his world record for long: from next year he wants to complete 100 Iron Man competitions in a row by completing ten Deca Ironman. Each Deca Ironman consists of 38 kilometers of swimming, 1,800 kilometers of cycling and 423 kilometers of running.
