When we think of legendary Olympic skiers we think of names like Bode Miller, Lindsey Vonn, and the great Alberta Tomba. Rune Kristiansen from Norway isn’t often one of the first names that roll off our tongues, but after watching his powerful, yet graceful style you’ll understand why Kristiansen has firmly placed himself in the league of legends.
One of the newest additions to the Olympic games, triathlons test the true heart of an athlete. Standard participation requires contestants to complete a 1.5 km swim, 40 km ride, and 10 km run. These three endurance races push the body to the limit. Mental fitness as well as physical fitness are required to prevent bonking; training is key to the success of any athlete. This drive to excel and go beyond drives SUGOI apparel. Inspired by athletes like you who push the limits, SUGOI is committed to providing training gear that incorporates the newest technology while staying fashion-forward.
With the two year Olympic triathlon qualification period ending in May, the 2012 Summer Olympics are just around the corner. Athletes to watch include: Alistair Brownlee (England), Emma Moffitt (Australia), Paula Findley (Canada), Jarrod Shoemaker (USA).
There’s never a dull moment for a triathlete. World Ironman Distance record holder and four-time World Champion, Chrissie Wellington understands this better than most athletes. Dedicating the last 5 years of her life to Ironman, Wellington has earned 13 victories in 13 races! Requiring extreme dedication and commitment, achievements such as this are highly impressive. Although, Wellington has announced her plans for taking a hiatus in 2012, there is no questions that she will continue to inspire athletes worldwide.
With constant demands on the body, athletes like Wellington know that performance apparel can play a pivotal role in achieving success. There are few clothing brands that understand this relationship between an athlete and their gear. Compression technology combining power, flex, and weight set 2XU apart from other apparel lines. A recent partner of the World Triathlon Corporation and Ironman, 2XU strives to continually develop new technology that will take athletes to the next level.
