Zone3 has announced the extension of its relationship with national governing body Triathlon Ireland as the organisation’s Official Swim Partner. Select members of Triathlon Ireland’s High-Performance and High-Performance Development Squad will wear Zone3 Vanquish wetsuits – on their road to the next Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games.
Irish triathletes have seen strong results over the 2017 season, with Russell White finishing 15th in the World Triathlon Grand Final in Rotterdam, which saw him gain automatic qualification for the Commonwealth Games. He recently raced in the high-profile event on the Gold Coast of Australia, competing alongside compatriots David Kerr and James Edgar who also gained selection for the Games.
Zone3 notest that it is delighted to be supporting Triathlon Ireland, which plays an important role in the growing triathlon industry. Sam Begg, Sponsorship and Partnership Manager at Zone3 said “We’re very proud of our close ties to Triathlon Ireland and we will continue to aid Irish federation members of all abilities with our all-new 2018 range of wetsuits, triwear and swimwear.
“Supporting the High-Performance Squad with some of the best wetsuits on the market will offer a performance edge that will no doubt see Irish athletes stamping their authority on international races throughout the season. We are really excited to watch and share in their season.”
Triathlon Ireland CEO Chris Kitchen said that the fact that so many High-Performance athletes were already wearing Zone 3 wetsuits made the brand a natural choice for Official Swim Partner. “For a number of years we’ve watched as Russell White has competed brilliantly against the best triathletes in the world – all while wearing Zone 3 in the swim. That’s about as good an endorsement for the quality and technical sophistication as you can get.” Kitchen said.
