Female IRONMAN record holder Daniela Ryf is the latest athlete to join the 2XU family
In a three-year deal the world’s No.1 female triathlete will train, compete and recover in 2XU, wearing their triathlon range including cycle kit and wetsuits.
Ryf dominated the IRONMAN World Championship in 2016, defending her 2015 title to cross the finish line with a new course record time of 8:46:46.
Ryf’s most recent win came last month at the IRONMAN 70.3 in Dubai, defending her 2016 title for a back-to-back victory.
Ryf, who represented Switzerland in triathlon at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, is pleased with her new relationship with 2XU.
“I am very exited to work with 2XU over the next three years, they offer great products for triathlon racing. I have been wearing their suit for the last 12 months and I’m surprised at how fast it is. To have the chance to work with a company on a product is very helpful for the athlete and I’m looking forward to working closely with 2XU,” Ryf said.
Ryf’s first official race wearing 2XU will be the IRONMAN African Championship at Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa on 2 April 2017.
