Creating a history of sorts, Shreyas G Hosur becomes the First Civil Servant from Karnataka to complete the grueling ‘IRONMAN’ Triathlon, considered to be the toughest single-day sports event in the world, which includes 3.8 km Swim, 180 km Cycling, and 42.2 km Running. He completed the event in 13 hrs 26 mins on 5th June 2022, in Hamburg, Germany. The finishers of the event are popularly known as ‘IRONMAN’ befitting the mental and physical strength the race demands!
Starting the 3.8km Swim at 6:30 am in the chilly waters of the Hamburg lake, it was followed by 180km cycling in the countryside and ended with a full marathon of 42.2kms.
An alumnus of PESIT, Shreyas is a Civil Servant from the 2012 batch, currently serving as Deputy Financial Advisor with South Western Railway in Bengaluru. It is a proud feeling that he has been able to achieve this challenging feat despite the challenges of his profession.
Prof. M R Doreswamy Chancellor of the PES University heartily congratulated on the Achievement.
