Fun fact: IRONMAN Pro winner

Did you know Pedro is the only Portuguese athlete to date to have won an official full distance IRONMAN?

It was in 2013 in Kalmar, Sweden, where he surpassed all competition and managed to win the race in 08 hours and 19 minutes. The world circuit at the professional level is composed of 21 races worldwide and only a few selected man and woman in the World can claim such a feature.

Fun Fact: loss of hearing

In 2014 Pedro loss 80% of his hearing capacity over night. All happened when one day he woke up and couldn’t hear from one side and since this is frequent in triathletes/swimmers just because water sometimes gets ‘stuck’ inside the ear, he didn’t gave it much importance at first. It was not until many weeks later that he saw a specialist who, after a batery of tests, told him that his ear drum was fine but the right hearing cells died for an unknown cause.

He has since lived with this limitation and while it doesn’t affect his balance, it does affect his dialogue on the bike when someone is riding on his right. He actually can’t hear you with all the wind noise!
