At
Recuperat-ion, we are lucky. Our athletes are endearing people before being
non-standard athletes. Here are a few questions asked to Sylvain Sudrie, in
order to know a little more about the France Champion of Triathlon Long
Distance.

Which athlete did inspire you the most? Why?
Surely Mark Allen. I remember seeing him at
the World Championships in Avignon in 1989. He was my big brother´s idol who
also practiced triathlon as well. I had the famous poster of Nike with Mark
Allen hanging in my room. He is an icon and a pioneer of the sport, and represents
at the same time performance and humility. Like a Boss!
What´s the race that makes you dream the most?
The Hawaii Ironman race, of
course. Even when I was running on Short Distance, every October I had an eye
on this race. Now that I am on the path, of course I want to have a look!
In your opinion, what is the best place to practice triathlon?
Bordeaux … in summer! I also
like to train in Lanzarote (Canary Islands), or in Boulouris (France), where I
often came for an internship. But this winter, I’ll go to Australia visit a
friend in Mooloolaba. I am looking forward to be there and enjoy another
culture, since it is one of the most famous spots in the world for Triathlon.
How do you manage your new life being a Daddy
Triathlete (Sylvain is a recent Dad)?
It is
not easy. I´m especially lucky to be able to rely on a lot on the mommy.
Sleeping, for example, is very important for an athlete, and during the first
few weeks, we had to adapt. The organization changed completely since we
suddenly live depending on the baby. During a race, in the hardest moments,
thinking about him helps me to bounce back and motivates me.
  
If you were not a triathlete and a military,
what job would you do?
Hard
to say! You don´t really ask questions when the results are on your side and
you’re reaching profesional levels. However, one day my dream is to open a wine
bar.
What is your favorite dish?
Good meat with fries, or a duck
breast. In general, I like simple and traditional cuisine.
What is your favorite wine?
There
are a few … but I especially like Château Latour Martillac, or Château Les
Ormes de Pez.
Would you identify yourself more like Ironman, Spiderman, Batman
or Superman?
More like Batman just for the
Batmobile! He is simply classier than the others.
What was the last movie you saw?
“Hangover”,
an American comedy. We had a good laugh, because some scenes of the film
reminded us some of our travel adventures. But in general, I especially love
action movies.
What music are you
listening to right now?
At
this time, I listen a lot to Tiësto!
