Petr Vabrousek wins Israman

SLS3 athlete Petr Vabrousek (CZE) won his first Ironman distance race of the 2013 season. The Israman is one of the hardest Ironman Distance races of the world with nearly 10000 feet of climbing and harsh winds in the israeli desert. Petr, racing in the SLS3 Compression Day Sleeves, won this race in 10:22:37, less than 60 seconds ahead of Bart Candel (NED).
"This has been the hardest race I have ever done, but it was a great start of the season..."
Once again - SLS3 compression socks seem to be unstoppable!
