Bio: Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, Pedro was not your regular sporty kid. In fact, it was only at the age of 16 that he was finally able to step in a deep water pool, where the mere thought of swimming across was daunting. Running came into the picture a couple of years later mostly instigated by his dad and as an arrangement to "earn" time in front of the computer screen where he was used to spend all free time. Triathlon started (as for most of us) as a fun challenge and with no other expectation than finishing the race.

Unsurprisingly performances weren't impressive from the get-go, but soon Pedro realized that the harder he worked the better he became. Commitment, perseverance and a new-found love for the sport took him from bottom of the pack to a stellar debut in an official Ironman (2nd place Ironman Florida 2010) and to becoming the first Portuguese to win an official full Ironman race (Ironman Sweden 2013).

Pedro is now consider an established triathlete, known across the World for his fearless and relentless racing style. Always supported by his family in pursuing his ambitions as a professional triathetle, he strives everyday to become a better athlete. He races mainly Ironman races and has his sights set on winning some of the sport's greatest competitions, including the renown Ironman World Championship in Hawaii.
