Denis Sketako: it will be my pleasure to participate in the 1st Powerman Greece

Denis Sketako comes from Slovenia and he is one of the greatest athletes that will come to Loutraki, in 24th of March to take part to Powerman Greece 2019. Denis is the 2016 European Long Distance Triathlon Champion and was 5th at the last year’s Long Distance Duathlon World Championships. See what he told us:

1. What do you love most at multisports? Do you prefer competing at duathlon or at other multisport‘s races?

Well I started my career with Ironman distance but in the last year I also compete in duathlon. It became an challenge for me, something special that I need to try. My fist duathlon race was in 2018 at Vejle (Powerman Denmark). The race was very fast and I didn’t know that the guys are so fast and strong. But general is very hard to choose between duathlon and triathlon.

2. Which is your favourite discipline: swimming, cycling or running?

Absolutely running 🙂

3. How did you feel when you crossed the finish line of the 2016 European Long Distance Triathlon Champion first?

This moment will remember forever. The last kilometers was so tense because second guy followed me few kilometers and at the end we were only 20second separated. It was a great beattle and at the end a great feeling:)

4. What did motivate you to register at POWERMAN Greece 2019?

First because this year I would like to race more duathlon races and Powerman Greece is a very good opportunity for this. 

And second because it’s a first Powerman Greece and it will be my pleasure to participate in this historical competition.

5. What do you expect from POWERMAN Greece 2019?

Like on every Powerman I expect high standard organization and interesting course. I take a litle look on race course and more than 1000m elevation in 60km bike will make race very tricky. For sure it will be a tough race, according list of athletes. But I like to compete with strong athletes and improving my performance.

Looking forward and good luck to every athlete 💪
