This Sunday, two females & two males will aim to create a new world standard of human performance across the swim, bike, and run.
Nicola Spirig & Kat Matthews will race head-to-head with their teams in the attempt to be the first female to complete a full distance triathlon in under 8-hours.
Kristian Blummenfelt & Joe Skipper will race head-to-head with their teams in the attempt to be the first male to complete a full distance triathlon in under 7-hours.
Each of the athletes competing are allowed to have 10 pacers that they are permitted to draft for the duration of the event. It is up to the athlete to determine how to best deploy their pacing team over the swim, bike, and run.
deboer wetsuits have designed special prototype wetsuits for both Nicola Spirig & Kristian Blummenfelt to help them get to T1 as quickly as possible in their attempt to make history!
The research that has gone into creating the prototype wetsuits for Nicola and Kristian will be incorporated into the design of a future generation of deboer wetsuit.
You can watch the live stream with a live data feed on all athletes on the website www.sub7sub8.com.
