All the members of the Corodex Organica Tri Team completed great races and successfully made it to the finish line in the Daman World Triathlon that took place last Saturday, March 8th, 2019 in Abu Dhabi.
At the end of January of this year, following a suggestion from our partner in the UAE and Oman, Corodex Industries, a number of Organica Water employees, better known as “Organicans” decided to take the challenge and join Corodex for the Daman World Triathlon.
This special event, one of the best organized triathlon races in the world, gives amateur athletes the opportunity to share a weekend of racing with the world´s most elite athletes. An added attraction of the event is that it takes places at the renowned Yas Marina F1 circuit. The Yas Marina F1 circuit offers very calm sea water for the athletes to swim in, with the extended possibility of racing the bike portion of the triathlon on the F1 track.
“On behalf of myself and the Corodex Industries Management team, it was a pleasure to host Organica for the ITU Abu Dhabi Triathlon World Championships in our nation’s capital! It is really amazing how in the very short time, both our teams have integrated seamlessly both in and out of the workplace,” commented Regional Director, Business Development, Mohanned Awad. “Our passion for what we hold dear in shared values, such as teamwork, discipline, and fair play is what unites us both in the office and in the triathlon arena! We look forward to receiving Organica every year in this lovely event and look forward to growing this relationship in bounds and leaps (and personal bests in swim/bike/run!). Go team Corodex/Organica!”
The members of the Corodex Organica Tri Team that participated in the event were: Mohanned Awad, Diosdado Ramos and Organica Water Sales Director of Strategic Projects Group, Alejandro Roman who participated in the Olympic distance triathlon (1,5 km swim; 40 km bike and 10 km run). In the afternoon portion of the event, Organica Water COO, Akhil Barar and Senior Manager of Proposals, Oscar Palomino raced in the Sprint distance triathlon (0,75 km swim; 20 km bike and 5 km run).
“The triathlon pushed me to the finish line with a smile, friends! Teamwork and unity both in business and leisure, the perfect combination for success with our Partner! A huge thank you to our friends from Corodex Industries for making my first triathlon such an amazing experience.” Senior Manager of Proposals, Oscar Palomino comments.
The team enjoyed every minute of the preparation leading up to the event and shared an amazing weekend in Abu Dhabi. It was the first triathlon for the Corodex Organica Tri Team, but the team is convinced that there will be many more to come.
“We are so lucky to have Corodex Industries as partners. We do not only share the goal of solving the world´s water challenges but also healthy and balanced company cultures,” Alejandro Roman, Sales Director – Strategic Projects Group states. “I really thank Corodex for giving us the opportunity of experiencing this wonderful triathlon opportunity. The event was very successful, it was nice to see all the colleagues crossing the finish lines with big smiles. We look forward to the next one…”
“The event was an amazing experience, full of energy, made all the more special by cheering on for my dear colleagues and swimming, running and cycling by their side!” stated Organica Water COO, Akhil Barar.
