Oakley has presented the latest in its ‘One Obsession’ series featuring two-time IRONMAN World Champion Jan Frodeno. Jan will be competing in Oakley’s new ARO helmet line at this year’s IRONMAN World Championship. The Oakley ARO helmet is due to retail in spring 2018.
The light hearted One Obsession campaign video campaign from Oakley showcases Frodeno’s training and lifestyle…
Jan Frodeno began competing as a swimmer at the age of 15 in Cape Town, South Africa, where he grew up for part of his childhood. After watching the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, Frodeno found his new passion and eventual career in the sport of triathlon. After competing in a few triathlons in his then home of South Africa, Frodeno returned to his birthplace in Europe to compete in the German League as an amateur.
After experiencing much success, including a silver medal at the 2004 U-23 World Championships, Frodeno decided to turn professional and race on the ITU World Cup circuit. His successes continued in ITU Olympic distance events before earning a spot on the German Olympic Team for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing – where he secured a gold medal after an exciting finish on the run.
Then after the 2012 London Olympics, Jan retired from the Olympic distance and shifted his focus to long-distance racing. Frodeno has won numerous prestigious events, including being the two-time winner of the IRONMAN World Championship and winner of the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
When Frodeno isn’t competing, he spends most of his time with his family at his home in Girona, Spain, and Noosa, Australia. Together, Jan and his 2008 Olympic gold medallist, Commonwealth and triple World Champion wife, Emma Snowsill, have a son, Lucca.
