When it comes to athletic performance, Luciano Ros is a machine who will not be stopped. As a passionate sports lover who has competed in several triathlons, he truly is an inspiration to us all. His most recent achievement was his completion of the 24th annual Huntington’s Disease Triathlon, which took place on July 26th, 2015, in Miami, Florida. All proceeds are being allocated toward research to find a cure for Huntington’s Disease, a degenerative brain disorder which affects roughly 30,000 Americans. Vitalyte is extremely proud to have Luciano Ros as a brand ambassador, and we congratulate him on his recent achievement.
The event had two distance options: Sprint and Olympic. The Sprint distance is the shorter option, but Luciano -- being the insatiable athlete that he is -- opted for the longer Olympic distance. The entire event consisted of a 0.7-mile swim, followed by a 21-mile bike ride, followed by a 6-mile run. Not only did Luciano complete each challenge, but he finished 3rd in his age group, in a total time of 2 hours and 6 minutes.
So what’s his secret? There’s nothing magical about it, and in fact, anyone can achieve this impressive milestone with the right attitude and the right amount of self-discipline. Luciano has only been competing in triathlons for a few short years, and has found the experience to be quite addictive. He trains year-round, and has learned a lot about himself in the process of constantly challenging himself. He firmly believes that with the right training, nutrition and mindset, there are no obstacles your body cannot overcome.
