Kienle said: “I’m very proud to work together with Orca in the future. A brand with a great history and a big future in Triathlon. In my wetsuit test after the season 2012 I was amazed by the performance of the wetsuits this made my decision very easy.”
In a statement, Orca said: “Orca are excited to announce a new sponsorship agreement with 70.3 World Champion Sebastian Kienle. In 2012 Sebastian Kienle won the 70.3 Championship in Las Vegas and finished 4th in Ironman Kona after a flat tyre when leading the course on the bike leg. Sebastian will exclusively use Orca apparel, clothes, compression technology and wetsuits. This agreement will reinforce the current presence of Orca in world-wide competitions”
Raúl Casañas, Orca Marketing Manager said: “We are happy to have Sebastian on board for a long partnership, not only for him to be an incredible athlete always fighting till the end, but as well for his extreme and deep interest in being supported by the best products to compete [with]. This will push us forward to develop even better products for triathlon that have been tested by him.”
