A tribute to The Hammer – Roy Nasr

I am not a crier Hammer as you know mate but when Johan called me yesterday morning its all I did. Its amazing how far you came as an athlete. You were the first person I trained, long before T2A became a force.

Coach & Hammer, 2009 Trons Palm swim

Hammer, remember when we stitched them up in 2003 in the Abu Dhabi Triathlon. Your best result prior was 10th or so in the days when only 40 raced. You did your usual swim, bike domination and they all thought they would run us down. They didn’t know how much we suffered at the Polo club on our running 5 long months before and how much we trimmed that perfect muscular frame down. Tina was so damn proud of her husband that day. Another trophy to add to your over flowing and proud shrine only this time your first triathlon victory against UAE’s best. Little did they know we had much greater medals to collect. How you loved to suffer on a bike, how about the Wolfi two up TT when we led off the front to only just get pipped by Kev and Tom. When we had lunch with Craig only 2 years back that you said you had never ridden and suffered so much on a bike but loved every minute of it. To this day, nobody in the local triathlon scene came close to your 70.3 World Championship record and that was at the age of 45. Then we headed to Beijing and placed 3rd in the World Sprint championships and

not only that, how proud were we all when Didge, Janey and Stuey all went in the Top 10 that same day.Before all these results were the Asian Games where you were so nervous yet again, performed on the World stage, this time against the Pros. The list goes on and your hard work and total dedication to your training is what paved the way to your incredible results. I was always close to my predictions, you would not of just qualified in Kona, you would of pushed a podium in the 50-54’s. What brought us together though was emotion, we wore our heart on our sleeves, its how we trained, how we raced and how we viewed our families. I will cherish those talks on life mate in particular on our kids and will never forget you. I often said to Mareesa in 20 years time when I am long gone from the desert, it will be Roy that will always be in my life. You will always be the Captain of our team, they never quite got that 🙂 From the entire T2A family both past and present, you will be deeply missed and long live TriDubai, a club that became your pride and joy. Your coach, Jason
