Van Lierde announced his 2015 race schedule

2013 Ironman World Champion Frederik van Lierde was introduced as an Ironman ambassador today.

“Being an IRONMAN World Champion is a real honour to me so I really want to engage and support people in becoming an IRONMAN as well. Even after all the races I have done, hearing: ‘You are an IRONMAN’ at the finish line still gives me goose bumps each time.”

In the course of this, he also announced his race schedule for 2015.
Van Lierde will already kick off his season with Ironman South Africa next weekend followed by a few shorter events.
Frederik selected the Ironman European Championship in Frankfurt as his second long distance race, where a rematch with 2014 winner and world champion Sebastian Kienle is very likely.

It’s only natural, that Ironman Hawaii will be his main objective in the second half of the year.
