Stefano qualifies for the ironman World Championship in Nice!
Our Pro Train Switzerland squad from coach Jana Perrone was present at the Zürich marathon/half marathon with the following athletes:
Victoria Dändliker has outdone herself in the marathon. She crossed the finishline as 40th woman out of 600 with a time of 03:18:18!
Ann-Kathrin Crede did a sprint start at the half marathon, had to pay for it, but showed her big mental strength by crossing the finish line with a time of 01:49:07.
And Oliver Horak smashed a new PB over the half marathon with a time of 01:22:22, showing a very good form on his way to Challenge Roth.
Jana Perrone, proud coach!
Stefano Matalucci has opted for Ironman Texas and also made important decisions to change the training times.
That was absolutely necessary in order to make the lofty goal to qualify for the Ironman World Championship Nice, September 10, 2023, possible at all.
In addition, for a few months, he tested a very precise protocol of nutrition for the race in cooperation with Jana.
All these important changes lead to a new PB and the hoped slot for the World Championship with his 14th pace M50-54.
And even a bike crash because of a bottle on the street couldn't change that.
10:28.13 his time - so very well executed Stefano.
It was an amazing time working together with you and Jana to make this dream happen.
