HOKA One One triathlete Emma Pallant will again be taking part in the World Duathlon Championships in British Columbia, Canada in August.
Pallant won the World Duathon Championships in both 2015 and 2016, and is looking to retain her title in 2017.
Coming from a running background, Pallant won the European U-23 Cross-Country title in 2011, before a knee injury wrecked her chances of selection for the 2012 Olympics over 5000m. She switched to Triathlons in 2012 and competed in her first event in London where she finished 6th in the Elite field and posted the fastest run.
Pallant has enjoyed a stellar 2017 so far, winning six of the nine events she has contested, including Ironman 70.3 victories in Barcelona and Edinburgh, and the Challenge Half distance event in Gran Canaria.
Pallant joined Team HOKA at the beginning of 2017, running in Cliftons due to the cushioning and protection. HOKA One One have recently released the new Clifton 4, which features an updated foam package to HOKA’s famed midsole geometry to ensure cushioning through the life of the shoe. The open engineered mesh is constructed to maximise breathability and support, and the more forgiving and adaptive forefoot ensures a smoother ride than ever before.
The World Duathon Championships take place from 18th to 27th August in Pentiction, Canada, and involves a 10km run, 40km bike and further 5km run.
