Jan Frodeno, an olympic gold medalist and two-time IRONMAN World Champion will start in the upcoming Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia, Poland. The German athlete is commonly regarded as the biggest triathlon star in history.

Jan Frodeno is the most titled athlete in the history of the sport of triathlon. He has won the biggest races on all the distances. He is the olympic gold medalist from Beijing (2008), two-time IRONMAN World Champion (2015, 2016) and a two-time winner of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships (2015, 2018). He also holds the world record at the full distance. In 2016 he finished a distance of 3.8 km swim, 180 km cycling and 42.2 km run in 7 hours 35 minutes and 39 seconds.

- Inviting Jan Frodeno to Poland was one of our goals - says Michal Drelich, CEO of Sport Evolution, the exclusive IRONMAN licensee in Poland. - Jan has a large group of fans all over the world, also in our country. I think that for all athletes it will be an exciting meeting. For us, this is anotherconfirmation that Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia is now considered one of the best and most prestigious triathlon events in the world. Stars like Andreas Raelert, Mirinda Carfrae, Timothy O'Donnell and the unmatched Daniela Ryf have already raced in Gdynia, with Daniela setting a new IRONMAN 70.3 world best last year. Now we can add Jan Frodeno to this list - says Michal Drelich.

Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia takes place on August 11, 2019. Athletes swim in the Baltic Sea, then take on a challenging, one-loop bike course leading through the picturesque Kashubia region in order to come back to town for the running stage, held on three loops in the city center and along the sea boulevards. Beach finish with a loud cheering crowd is the race’s icing on the cake.
