The competition in Austria started on Friday at 6 p.m. The race included 7,6 kilometers of swimming, 360 kilometers of biking, and 84 kilometers of running, which Majer ended with a time of 37:48:52. Triathlon is an Olympic sport and has been in the Olympic Games since 2000. Majer started with triathlon accidentally four years ago when he just wanted to achieve his desired body weight. Today, he is a certified Ironman coach. 

The first Ironman race - half of the Ultraman's route – he completed two years ago at a competition in the Canary Islands. Majer also founded the school for running "Gump" in Podgorica last year, in which, in cooperation with the Montenegrin athletes, helps students learn how to run properly.

After six months of training, a large number of school attendants also participated in the Podgorica Marathon in October and finished their first races on five, 10 and 21 kilometers.
