IRONMAN ® WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Kona … records just blew off!

The most iconic of all iconic triathlon races took pace in Hawaii this 8th October with its share of joy and deception. Compressport® was again partner of the event, in the form of a specially designed full-fledged Ironman® product line.

Joy was all-German in the men`s league…

… as the first three places were grasped by Frodeno, Kienle and Lange! Jan Frodeno did not let go of the title he won last year at the same event, beating his own time by almost 11 minutes, in 8h06’30’’.

On the female side, Daniela Ryf did more than just win the title, for the second consecutive time. She blasted the chronometer by more than 5 minutes over existing record from Australian Mirinda Carfrae. Her full-time accomplishment on Kona 2016: 8h46’46″.

Compressport ®`s partner athletes…

Bart Aernouts (BMC-Etixx Pro Triathlon Team powered by Uplace) and Frederik Van Lierde managed to stay in the pack and respectively pointed at the 8th and 10th places. At the same time, BMC-Etixx team placed 3 of their best athletes in the top 15.  On the female side, Lisa Roberts finished strongly in a more than respectable 16th place. Kristin Moeller and Gurutze Frades were respectively 26th and 27th.

In the meantime, The Road Cycling World Championships…

… kicked off in Doha, Qatar, with the Teams Time Trial. Etixx-Quickstep did a fabulous ride to take the win by over 12 seconds, while our sponsored women team, geared in our most innovative compression clothing, cycled their way with style and class to the third place.


The Cycling World Championships continue up to the 16th October, while the Skyrunning Series make it to the final, on Saturday 15th October, in Limone, Italy.
