Amid a recent record breaking sports trend, Maltese triathlete Fabio Spiteri has broken the record of cycling 970km around Sicily in less than 48 hours.
This morning, he officially became the second person in history to complete this impressive feat in less than two days and he did it alongside the previous record holder.
“I did it!!!” Spiteri said in an inspiring Facebook post where he boasted his historical achievement.
This is not the first time that Spiteri has attempted this exhausting challenge. In October 2020, he smashed the cycle in two days and eight hours.
This year, however, it took him eight hours less with a mind-blowing 47 hours 41 minutes and 44 seconds.
Behind the herculean cycle lay a charitable cause that Spiteri aims to raise €50,000 for; animal shelters.
“Help me reach my target to collect €50,000 for animal shelters,” the post pleaded.
