Dimitriy Grabovskyy said he loves cycling and running but swimming? He feels he is out of air, and he is last.

Dmitriy Grabovskyy born in Crimea in 30/09/1985
I started cycling at age 13.
In 2015 became an Israeli citizen.
In Israel, as around the world became popular iron man. In 2014 I decided to try their capabilities in the half iron man. I never swam and ran. I started training for 4 months before israman. I wanted to show a time of 4hours 30minutes. But something went wrong, I swam very slow, and in the running I had problems with the size and model of running shoes. Now I want to make a full israman. And I want to show a very good results. I believe in a professional approach from the trainers waterworld(Ori Sella and other). My technique of swimming will help me very much to save me strength for the bike and run. After israman I decide on further action in the iron man. Now the main goal israman.
