Ironman athlete profile: Timo Bracht

Welcome to the sixth and last of our webclips about Ironman.

We meet up with Timo Bracht, twice former European Ironman champion and one of the most successful German Ironman athletes of the last decade.

Having combined being a father and a successful athlete for 13 years, Bracht has not only become an integral initiator and member of Team ‘Sport For Good’, but also a mentor to a lot of amateur athletes including very talented young ones such as his teammate Julian Bechert.

In this clip we visit Bracht in his home town of Eberbach, where he takes us on a family kayak trip and training swim in the Neckar river. We also join him during training sessions with Julian Beuchert and at the Ironman 70.3 in Ruegen, Germany.

Interviews with his wife Bettina, his son Andre and also with Julian Beuchert round off this clip.
