Ironman world champion Jan Frodeno wants to take part in a triathlon race for the first time since the outbreak of the corona pandemic in March.
“I’m going to Miami 03/12/21”, wrote the 39-year-old under a video on Instagram, announcing his start at the prestigious Challenge Miami.
Frodeno has not competed since his third triumph in Hawaii in October 2019.
Last year, Frodeno only did one home Ironman for a good cause. In the year-end spurt, two falls with the bike prevented a return to official racing.
In Miami, the athletes from the LAZ Saarbrücken are subject to strict hygiene requirements on a shortened middle distance.
After swimming a mile, there are 60.3 kilometers of biking and 16.9 kilometers of running on the Miami Speedway.
The field of participants is high-class. With the Canadian Lionel Sanders and the US athletes Timothy O’Donnell and Ben Hoffman, Frodeno meets some of his main rivals in the races in Hawaii.
In the women’s category, Ironman world champion Anne Haug will also face prominent competition. Among other things, the Bayreuth meets the Hawaii runner-up Lucy Charles Barclay (Great Britain).
