Frodeno to open 2017 campaign at Chia Sardinia Triathlon

Ironman world champ Jan Frodeno to race Chia Sardinia Triathlon

Iron-distance record holder and 2015 and 2016 Ironman World Champion Jan Frodeno will start his 2017 season at the Chia Sardinia Triathlon, on April 23, 2017.

In its second year the race will take place in Chia, a tourist destination in South Sardinia, Italy. Frodeno will be racing the 70.3 distance and his presence means all the other athletes will get to compete alongside the most iconic triathlete in the world.

As the event’s ambassador, Frodeno will promote the race globally through social media; sharing training tips and live coverage of his race.

“I have had excellent reviews of the race. With a great organisation and spectacular landscapes, Chia seems to be a perfect place to enjoy sports to the fullest, and the Chia Laguna, within a walking distance from the course, a perfect resort to stay”, says Frodeno.

“I am very excited to race in Chia, hopefully it will be a brilliant start of my European season and a good test for the longer race in summer”.

We have named Jan Frodeno 11th in our top 15 Kona greats of all time
