Henning's New Book "PRO Chasing the Dream" Available in English


pro chasing the dream bookThe Great Dane Rasmus Henning has been one of the top male triathletes in the world for over 10 years. He recently won the 3rd edition of the prestigious Abu Dhabi International Triathlon - an emphatic win where he ran down Faris Al-Sultan on the 20 km run (3:18/km pace!) to take a great win. Not long ago Henning released a book "PRO Chasing the Dream" and now it's available in English as an E-book on Amazon. Book website: www.prochasingthedream.com

"When I arrived in Hawaii in September, I was more than confident that I could win the Ford Ironman World Championship - or at the very least, a spot on the podium. - I couldn't help but feel the pressure to deliver a top performance - a lot of people saw me as a medal contender. My 2009 debut in Hawaii certainly piqued many experts' interest, placing 5th - with a broken hand, no less."

The book follows professional triathlete Rasmus Henning life for a full year in his attempts to win the biggest race in triathlon - the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii.

They follow him while training, in competition and balancing a family life.

After 8 years of Olympic Distance racing with numerous big results to his name, he switched back to iron distance racing in 2009 and immediately became a success. He won Ironman China in April 2009 with a 30 minute margin and qualified for Ironman Hawaii. In August the same year he became European Long Distance Champion and thus became the second male to have won both short and long course European Championships. 



After a perfect build up to Ironman Hawaii, Rasmus crashed on his bike 17 days before the race and broke his right hand. He decided to be at the start line anyway despite the broken hand and managed a fifth place finish in his debut in Kona.

He went on to Ironman Hawaii in October as one of the main favorites, only to experience a devastating day of embarrassing mistakes, major misfortunes and huge disappointment - and ended up in 23rd place.

In 2011 Rasmus struggled with severe cramps in several races during the season. He came into Ironman Hawaii in good shape but only managed to finish 14th on a day where the body didn't co-operate as it should. 



His goal for 2012 is the same as always: To become Ironman World Champion in Hawaii this October.
