Sport has changed my life completely. I find self-satisfaction by constantly exceeding my limits. But my athletic life was not easy. I have had to move forward, leaving behind many obstacles. I believe there is nothing you can dream that you will not be able to achieve by putting your whole heart, body, soul, and mind into the journey itself, not the victory. This belief motivates me to chase my dreams, not in sports, but also in real life.
On February 23, 2020, I participated in the Toyota Ironman 70.3 Bangsean and became the first Bangladeshi 🇧🇩 to qualify for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship 🏅.
How was my journey to qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship, and what is my next goal? Social Shorts has released this documentary based on my IRONMAN journey. This documentary follows my lofty challenge and covers what it takes to finish IRONMAN 70.3(1.9k swim, 90k bike, and 21.1k run) or IRONMAN(3.8k swim, 180k bike, and 42k run). 🏊♂️🚴♂️🏃♂️
Please pray for me to stay healthy and represent Bangladesh for the first time in the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on September 17-18, 2021. 🙏
