45-year-old boss of Astana and former pro, Alexandre Vinokourov, successfully completed this year’s Iron Man World Championship held in Hawaii.
Vinokourov had finished second in the qualifying round for his age category in Copenhagen earlier in August.
The former pro completed Saturday’s race in 9 hours and secured seventh place in his division. He placed 201st in the overall championship.
Vinokourov displayed some impressive skills during the epic 9-hour race which consisted of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile ride and a 26.2-mile full marathon. He took 01:13:51 for completing the swim, 04:18:06 for the ride and 03:33:53 for the marathon.
Vinokourov began his professional racing career in 1998 with a peloton and ended it in 2012 with Astana. The 45-year-old finished the championship in 09:13:37, just over his qualifying time of 09:04:16 in August.
Patrick Lange of Germany was declared winner of the Iron Man Championships with a finishing time of 07:52:39.
Daniela Ryf of Switzerland snagged the title of fastest woman on the day despite getting stung by a jelly fish in the very start, whereas British racer Lucy Charles picked up the silver medal.
Vinokourov retired from his racing career in 2012 after an epic road race in London where he took home the Olympic gold medal.
