International Star's venture to Vietnam's 70.3 Asia-Pac Champs

Friday 10 May 2019
Headlining the field of 40 professional athletes will be multi-time IRONMAN World Champions Patrick Lange and Craig Alexander on the men’s side and former IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion Holly Lawrence and defending IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam Champion, Radka Kahlefeldt on the women’s side. Patrick Lange, the 2017 & 2018 IRONMAN World Champion and Kona record holder shared, “Techcombank IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam Asia-Pacific Championship is the first race of the season and I chose it on purpose. Not only will the warm and humid conditions be pretty similar to Kona, it will also be my first possibility to see where my fitness is right now.”

Some of the world’s fittest athletes will arrive in Da Nang to compete in the 5th edition of Techcombank IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam. Not only will the race celebrate its 5th anniversary with another record turnout, it will also be the first time that Vietnam plays host to the IRONMAN 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship which was hosted in the Philippines in 2018.

In five short years, Techcombank IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam has helped put Vietnam on the global map for triathlon and helped reinforce Da Nang as a major sports tourism destination attracting international athletes and a growing community of local athletes from around the country. The event has achieved record growth each year, with nearly 2,200 participants expected in 2019, and helped to contribute to the local economy in terms of growing economic impact. Hosting the event in Da Nang for five consecutive years and bringing a championship event this year also raises the profile of the city as a world class destination, a sentiment shared by the New York Times in ranking the city at #15 in their list of “52 Places to Go in 2019”.

Each year, individuals and relay teams, test themselves in this incredible endurance event consisting of a 1.9km swim, 90 km bike & 21km run. As host to the Asia-Pacific Championship, there will be 50 qualifying slots available for top individual finishers in their age group to the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France on September 7th & 8th.
