ROBIC Supports Triathlete Patrice Brisindi
Putting forward self-transcendence, Patrice Brisindi has followed a unique path to becoming an extraordinary athlete. He has proven that anyone, if they put heart and effort, can accomplish extraordinary things. ROBIC is proud to support a triathlon athlete of Patrice’s caliber, who meets many values that the firm encourages: excellence, performance and discipline, among others.
Despite being diagnosed with a cancer for which he had surgery at the beginning of February 2012 and for which preventive chemotherapy is planned in March, his momentum has not stalled as he is already back in training. He is currently preparing himself for the Quebec Cup (sprint and olympic distance) and Ironman competitions in Lake Placid and Hawaii in 2013. In 2012, he will also participate in the Ironman race at the Triathlon Festival in Montreal.
Working in the field of transport as well as being a fitness and triathlon trainer, Patrice stopped smoking at age 30 and began training for the triathlon at the age of 35. Noting that his fitness was not at its best, he started running and cycling in 2005 and 2006 to get fit and gain speed in hockey, where he plays in a league.
To complement his training, he decided to add swimming to participate in a short-distance triathlon in Montreal in September 2006. Since then, always pushing his limits, he participated in the Ironman race in Lake Placid twice. He qualified in the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii in 2011, which he completed in 10 hours 26 minutes.
ROBIC is proud to support Patrice in his sporting journey. Throughout his racing and his training for the Triathlon Festival in Montreal on September 8, 2012, Patrice will inform us about the latest developments. His website can be found here. Good luck Patrice!
