"Compressport means to me an amazing tool to perform at my best."
Mauricio Mendez, Pro Triathlete
How did you get into Triathlon?
I started when I was 10. It all began as a father and son relationship and it became a hobby, so much so that today we make it our passion and profession! Winning the XTERRA World Championship, especially the moment I could run to my Dad after achieving our biggest goal until that time... It meant the beginning of my true self.
Who forms your team?
I have a big team, huge if you ask me. On the head is my Dad as coach and mentor/manager. The ones who actually make it possible for me to grow (sponsors) as an athlete and as a person. Last but not least, always the family and people who support no matter where I am in the world, how far or for how long.
Tell us a bit more about you...
I´m Mau Mendez from Mexico City. You will see I have a big passion for sport..from triathlons to trail running, I like to try everything. I am also a coach and have a team together with my Cousin and Dad. After my Pro career, I would love to become an alpinist.
Compressport means to me an amazing tool to perform at my best. The clothing is very performance oriented, with every detail taken care of that truly makes a difference.
In all honesty, for me Compressport has become a loyal companion, a true team, a family that have one goal in common... supporting everyone in any situation.
What is your favourite product from Compressport and why?
I would go for the “full socks ultra recovery”. I believe that recovery makes the difference between winning and losing races!
