2013 had already been underway for a few months when we began working with pro triathlete Angela Naeth and armed her with a Helix wetsuit. Angela earned a few wins and notable performances and we kicked off a great friendship - the potential was becoming clear. Earlier this year (2014) we inked a multi-year sponsorship and Angela has delivered a fantastic result right out of the gate!
Last weekend in Panama much of triathlon's top 70.3 talent was there to open up 2014. Panama 70.3 is the Latin American Championship event so there was a lot of motivation for pros chasing World's points or a solid payday. The water was cool and wetsuit legal but the day delivered a scorcher as temperatures soared during the race. Angela exited T2 with a lead she would never relinquish. Earning a championship right out of the barrel in her first race of the year Angela is truly an athlete on the rise and we are fortunate to be part of her team. Congratulations Angela!
