He knows what it takes to win and is ready to do all he can to keep the title.
He said: “To win Rotterdam was quite cool. It was really special for me.
“In stage one I felt confident but tried not to go too hard and was in the middle of the field. On stage two I was able to win which really surprised me. I went all out on the last stage and I got fourth and in total it was enough to win the first Arena Games. It was amazing.
“The intensity of the format is huge. In the first stage it is like a normal triathlon but with each stage it get harder and harder and in the end it is just all about surviving. I never give up and fight until the finish line.”
