Daniel Queiroz Marques da Cruz France - BRAZIL/Piauí/Teresina - 42 years old

- Most of my achievements are personal: long pedal trips; all Ironmans completed; as well as the Ironmans, being the first Ironman in 1993, in Porto Seguro; in the same year I ran one of the most amazing races I've ever done in the middle of Marisia 1993, where Alexandre Ribeiro broke the chain in the Serra and then won the race so he went to Hawaii to make the best time in history, until today if I don't. mistake.... I was Piauí champion of Cycling - road, in 2015;
- Why do you want to participate in UB515: “Since I was a teenager I like to challenge my limits. That's why I started to practice Triathlon, as a challenge. At the age of seventeen, I decided to do my first half Ironman in Porto Seguro, 1993. I was very happy to have completed the race in third place in my category and to be on the podium, which made my passion for long-distance sports grow even more. Regarding the event, I have been following Alexandre Ribeiro for many years and I always wanted to participate in a competition like this, but access was very difficult. Now with the test being held in Brazil, with my stable situation, good health and training for long distances up to date, I feel that I am able to participate and complete the test. The biggest reason to participate is to test my limit and try to find the spirit of friendship and family that existed in Triathlons of the 90s and that no longer exists."

Move forward when everything seems contrary, reversing completely adverse situations, knowing how to dose energy are some examples. The UB515, in particular, I have observed since the 1st edition. For 2 consecutive years I thought about sending this application, but only this year, after talking a lot with my coach and friends who have already run the race, I feel motivated to do that. Much more than the distance, I feel attracted to a job where the spirit of friendship and companionship is noticeable even at a distance."
