Maxim Kuzmin: «A wonderful result»

Maxim Kuzmin

The new world champion Maxim Kuzmin, who won the 29th Powerman Zofingen found his voice again, which means we found someone who can speak Russian. And that's what the champ said.

«First, I can't realise I did it. I simply cannot believe it. I was going to fight and see if I could get a podium place, but gold...

I reached the leading pack after 30k cycling. After 70k I decided to attack. I pushed during the hill and realised it broke the "pack". A French guy and I we were in front. I kept on pushing gard to increase my run after T2 and... well. Amazing.

In 2016 it was the first time when I tried LD duathlon. You know I am a winter triathlete who took the decision to change disciplines and go to duathlon. I was 5th here last year and in 2017 I was focussed on endurance plus speed training sessions. So that is the result. A wonderful result!»
