Breitling Triathlon Squad Member Jan Frodeno Stays On His Mission
Jan Frodeno, a member of Breitling’s Triathlon Squad, is one of his sport’s greatest stars. He claimed the gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and has won three IRONMAN World Championships. This is clearly a man who can handle a challenge.
In the year that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the cancellation of virtually all sporting events, Frodeno took on a “triathlon at home” (Tri@Home) on Saturday, April 11, 2020, and incredibly, swam 3.8 kilometers, rode 180 kilometers, and ran 42 kilometers, completing the full IRONMAN distance he would have done outdoors in normal IRONMAN conditions.
And he did it in the training room of his home in Girona, Spain. Jan Frodeno used the occasion to raise funds for two charities based in Girona: Coronavirus Support and Disability Sport.
Breitling was proud to donate three very special watches in support of its Triathlon Squad member’s initiative, which had already raised a staggering EUR 220,000 by Monday evening.
