He is still active in these sports, both as an athlete and as a coach. David has the intention to do the Marathon Majors again as he likes the energy and atmosphere of these events. His plans for the next few years as an athlete are to do the Challenge Family Triathlon in Roth in 2017, another full Ironman Triathlon, Trail races and Ultra-marathons. He has recently completed his journey of the 7 continents of the world for marathon races. He has completed the marathons in the Antarctica and South America in January 2017, and just finished the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon (the ultramarathon race of 56km) in Cape Town, South Africa in April 2017.
Besides these races, David has traveled to different places for adventure and outdoor activities. He has toured parts of central Java, Indonesia on bicycle, and trekked up the highest active volcanic mountain in East Java, Mt Semeru.
David is also an experienced sports and life coach, and he will share insights in preparing well for these races. Upon request, he can provide professional coaching for our clients, customizing it to suit their varying standards, and giving them a more structured program for their preparation. David’s focus in coaching is holistic - encompassing the mind, body and soul in the athlete’s readiness to take on the challenges ahead.
