Press Release

(Atlanta, GA – 14 Oct 2019) – Wahoo, the leader in connected fitness devices, offers its congratulations to Jan Frodeno and Lucy Charles on incredible performances at the 2019 IRONMAN World Championships. In addition to notching his third IRONMAN Championship win, the 38-year-old German-born Frodeno set a new course record, finishing in a time of 7:51:13. Frodeno is only the third triathlete in history to complete the World Championship in under eight hours.

Lucy Charles took second place amongst the pro women, making this the third successive time the 26-year-old UK triathlete earned an IRONMAN podium spot. Charles had an impressive swim and bike segment, leading the race until mile 20, but was pressed to match the eventual winner’s blistering pace.

The hard-training Lionel Sanders also made a strong showing, turning in the notable times on the swim and bike portions of the Championships. The 31-year-old Canadian trains almost exclusively indoors on the Wahoo ecosystem and is a longtime fan favorite.

“We are completely inspired by these athletes’ commitment to training for Kona and their drive to perform during the race,” says Mike Saturnia, CEO of Wahoo. “Seeing that pay off on the biggest day of the year is simply thrilling for everyone in the Wahooligan community.”
