hep Athletes


Sebastian Kienle is renowned for winning the 2014 Ironman World Championship as well as the 2012 and 2013 Ironman 70.3 World Championship. As his sponsor, we are happy to know that Sebastian invests in our solar funds in order work on his carbon footprint. Thus, he can focus on preparing for another World Championship: The Ironman 2019 in Hawaii.



Maurice Clavel is both duathlete as well as triathlete. He developed from Vice European Champion in the triathlon middle distance to third place in the Ironman South Africa and, in 2018, winner of the Ironman 70.3 Vichy. Today, he is ranked among the best of German triathletes for the Ironman distance. 


LAURA PHILIPP. Triathlete.

With a time of 8:34:57 she also holds the German record at the Ironman distance - a record she achieved during a competition in Barcelona in 2018. This qualified her for the Ironman Championship in Hawaii in 2019. We are happy to be able to support this promising athlete along her way and appreciate her motto: WAKE UP. WORK HARD. LOOK HOT. KICK ASS.
