Ironman® World Championships: All eyes on the defending champions?

One of Kona’s unwritten rules is: „Never bet against the champions of last year!“
In the end the race starts with a gunshot and equal opportunity for all athletes this Saturday.
Last year’s race proved that being an outsider need not be a disadvantage when Andreas Raelert, whom only a few had on the radar on that day, stormed to 2nd place. Timothy O’Donnell, who especially set accents on the bike, finished 3rd.

Not winning the race last year doesn’t necessarily mean that there won’t be promising perspectives to make a mark on race day.
Castelli has left nothing to chance in providing our athletes the most functional and aerodynamic apparel for Hawaii’s extreme conditions.
Depending on your personal preference, they will race in customized Sanremo Suits, T1:Stealth Tops or Free two-piece kits.

Make sure to follow our Facebook triathlon page and instagram account during race week for latest Kona news and a chance to win exclusive prizes.
