Congratulations to the Prince

That was probably Shirin Gerami, the first Iranian woman to qualify for and race at Kona. I think she's coached or mentored by PNF and is a lot faster than many other young women who also qualify for Kona. Her times for 70.3 are starting to get close to the 5hr mark. I have a lot of respect for this woman after seeing her race at Bahrain 70.3.

I must be confused. I thought she grew up in the UK and was mentored by CW, different person?

She does live in the UK now. I don't know about her childhood. I have no idea if she knows CW or the other CW 😂

All I know is she races for Iran as a covered Muslim.

Is he next in line to be king? 

Because this is delusion of a grand scale if he is just another prince in the world

No his older brother is the Crown Prince. I heard Nasser is more likely to be groomed for Presidency but that was just the talk amongst the Bahrainis (a fairly high Al Khalifa Shaikh so could be a good source). I guess his status in the Royal family would be on par with Prince Harry.

Yeah I think that's her, I'm sure Chrissie was quite instrumental in helping her in the early days, I remember reading a few interviews with her about getting suppliers on board to develop race clothing.

Bahaha. As if the princes mother was ever allowed to read and write in life or even see her son after he turned 8. 

Nasser's mother is Kuwaiti Royalty, highly educated, with extraordinary wealth. Bahrainis treat the mother figure with the utmost high respect.

The Prince could be in a bit of hot water, though I suppose he could buy his own way out. It remains to be seen how the rest of his teams go.

Not surprised.  And I thought he was just a draft cheat. Not a drug cheat as well.

This is so funny. Can’t wait to hear Macca’s spin on this.

Depends if macca is still on the princes payroll. 

I think his money is now coming from Russia. Not Bahrain.

I told you all this way back in 2016/17. I've met Milan Erzen on many occasions. He bought David Plese across from Slovenia to be Nasser's champion because Erzen thought the Aussie triathlete that Khalid was supporting in BH was 'B' Grade (and he didn't like Aussies) Erzen said to people I knew back then, that he would show Nasser a 'real' triathlete. Since then, the Aussie based in BH has started beating Plese in 70.3. LOL

I good friend of mine worked at an airline head office in BH. Erzen latched on to him and put him to good use. My friend organised many last minute trips for Erzen from BH to China, Spain etc, so that Erzen could arrive at race locations or pick up 'something' a few days ahead of the Sheikh's races. Erzen would only stay in the country of a few hours and fly straight back to BH. We can only speculate on the purpose of the trips. They were always trips into countries with easy access to drugs. We're not doping experts - we are the naive masses.

Erzen was also a Pro cyclist for Slovenia back in his prime - if it sounds like a duck...

There's no doubt among the tri community in BH about the level of cheating at that level. They used it as excuse to do it themselves. I heard it straight from the athletes mouths who raced Age Group at 70.3 world champs.

That's funny. The media is definitely connecting Erzen to the Ironman brand in it's reporting of this story, even if it's just via images:

The Triathlete story I read also had many IM connections, referencing his involvement as race director of IM Slovenia, and his connections with the Prince and another Slovenian in the Bahrain Tri team.

David Plese

nice guy, though he must be sweating. I doubt that IM will actively do anything to catch out any triathletes associated with nasser. Would be bad for their cash flow 😂

Macca just told me it’s a cycling investigation has nothing to do with triathlon😂😂😂😂

The Operation Aderlass doping investigation picked up steam on Wednesday, when it was announced that Bahrain-Merida Pro Cycling Team’s managing director, Milan Erzen, had been implicated, along with a duo of the team’s riders. Erzen is a figurehead of the triathlon and cycling communities in both his native Slovenia and Bahrain, and has been aiding in the training program of Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad al Khalifa since 2013.

Correct. If Ironman had the balls they would be testing him like crazy going forward. But they won’t.  . 

Basically messck is a softcock and would never stand up against anyone with money.

I love it when you validate what I say. It is only when you do that I trust my thoughts. 😏

Erzen is hardly a figurehead. He hides in the shadows and 99% of the folk training and racing at the BH races wouldn't have a clue who is is. He only works with the Sheikh and has nothing to do with the development of the sport for the masses (except for bringing the Merida team out once a year so that the local cyclists can ride with them for a couple of hours). He also takes care of the Sheikh's endurance horses to bring them up to winning standard 😉 He pops in and out of the country for key race prep only as his family don't live there. Plus, there are 3 BH merida riders implicated, not 2. You are right that Erzen showed up in BH during 2013. I'm sure he had something to do with the astounding improvements in the Sheikh's performances over the 5 years of his Kona quest.

I wondered how long before we started talking about the Bahrain Merida bust. The link between Bahrain sponsorship and triathletes is fairly direct and it is only a matter of time, regardless of facts and evidence, that a focus on performance assistance for those athletes will occur. Most of us would like to think there's nothing there, but how many times in the past have we been wrong?
