Vicente Juan García wins in Israel the Sovev-Emek and completes the Grand Slam 5 Continents
Vicente Juan García, the “king of the deserts”, has succeeded in his purpose of completing the circuit Grand Slam 5 Continents: a non-stop race of 100 miles in each continent throughout the year 2014.
The highlight of this circuit took place last week in the Ultramarathon Sovev-Emek, in Israel, where he was the winner.
This tour has been the real test of the runner from Alicante, who has adapted his strategy to the environmental conditions and to the format of the race in each continent.
With this new circuit, Vicente Juan García proves that he has surpassed himself, by facing a new format of race (a non-stop race format of 100 miles). Therefore, this race has requested a new strategy and perspective, and a different physical and psychological training. These are major challenges which require being surrounded by high performance equipment of Lurbel, to be at the height of such an international challenge. This equipment is suitable for all kind of obstacles and bad weather conditions.
Ultimately, the “king of the deserts” has added this circuit to his perfect track record, and he has definitely proved that the King knows no frontiers.
