As the racing year draws to a close it is a good time for us to reflect on a year of exceptional growth and remarkable results by our Trisutto athletes, in both the Professional and Age Group ranks.
Our Professional Team closed out the year with 42 wins and 76 podiums highlighted with a fantastic Olympic Silver Medal for Nicola Spirig in Rio, and a dominating Ironman World Title defence (and course record) by Daniela Ryf in Hawaii.
Whilst it may be too difficult to total the actual number of podiums and PBs across the board by our Age Group athletes, Trisutto were represented by 25 athletes at the Ironman World Championships in Kona and had over 50 World Championship qualifiers for the year.
2016 saw our Online athletes increase by over 120%, now totalling 220 athletes.
Coaching staff also doubled in numbers, from 13 to 26.
Our athletes cover all corners of the globe with 36 nationalities represented at present.
We also expanded our number of Trisutto camps and locations, resulting in 300 athletes attending one of the 36 camps held throughout the world.
Congratulations to all our athletes, supporters and coaches on a very memorable year.
We all have different life circumstances, opportunities and talents, however we have continued to be inspired by each other’s hard work and commitment to improve; all of us in our own individual pursuit to become the best that we can be. In competition and in life.
We at Trisutto would like to take this opportunity to wish all our athletes, supporters and coaches a Merry Christmas and a happy and successful New Year.
