DANILO PALMUCCI, AN ITALIAN CHAMPION AT THE 2018 ITU WORLD TRIATHLON GRAND FINAL GOLD COAST – AUSTRALIA
Rome, September 2018 – Triathlon Legend Danilo Palmucci will compete at the 2018 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Gold Coast – Australia on September 12th.
The “Ironman” who has won 185 times, completed 300 races and stood on many podiums in world-class events all over the world, brings his impressive achievements and his expertise to the Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte Hotel in Rome. Danilo has been the Hotel’s Master Trainer for over a decade and the Hotel de Russie is delighted to sponsor his participation at this important international event.
Danilo, a self-proclaimed perfectionist and a “capoccione” (hardhead) has dedicated a large part of his life to this exceptionally challenging sport and he gets great satisfaction from participating in international competitions all over the world. He is particularly driven this year, seeing that he is the only Italian competing in his age category. “The Triathlon”– said the Italian champion – “is a sport where you compete against others whilst also discovering yourself, your strengths and weaknesses as an athlete. This sport was one of the first to host athletes with disabilities and has inherently created a harmonious community”.
Danilo uses his philosophy to create tailor-made training programmes to fit each individual style, using a mix of cardio intervals, dynamic toning and passive stretching. Combining his Roman origins and sports background, Danilo has created an innovative early morning ‘run or bike’ programme through the Eternal City for guests of the Hotel de Russie. It’s a great way to muse at historical landmarks and enjoy the fresh air. You might even have a quick espresso in an authentic bar with Danilo!
Hotel de Russie is thrilled to support Danilo Palmucci and wish the Italian champion an exhilarating and successful competition.
