GYMBO Fitness Manager and Personal Trainer, Samer Mansour, has taken 3rd place at the recent Lebanese Triathlon Championship, which was held in Manara area, Beirut on Sunday 8th December 2013.                                                                                                                                                                   
Organized by the Lebanese Triathlon Federation, over 250 participants from all across Lebanon took part in this year’s event, which happened to witness challenging weather conditions.                                                                                                                                                                                                   
When asked about his feelings after winning, Samer said: ”I am very happy and delighted to have won 3rd place this year, given I had just completed a marathon two weeks prior to the triathlon! So I only had 2 weeks to prepare for this challenging and demanding event. To me, and in the circumstances, it was an achievement to grab 3rd place in this competitive event, which brought together over 250 participants from across the country.                                                                                                                                                     
“Apart from the ‘competitiveness’ aspect of it, this event brings together the elite of Lebanon’s athletes, sportsmen and sportswomen, and this in itself is a great thing. I would like to congratulate my teammates who won 1st and 2nd places, and thank the organizers for a job well done. And personally, I would like to thank my family and friends, who always provide me with the greatest support ever,” concluded Samer.                                                                                   
Samer was passionate about the sport of running since he was a kid and decided to take it up professionally 15 years ago. During that period, he participated in 10 professional marathons and 5 triathlons, and grabbed several trophies and certificates along the way. In 2005, and after completing the necessary training and international certification, Samer started coaching and training in Fitness, running and triathlons.
