Strong partners: Power Ladies compete in the IRONMAN for Mercedes-Benz.
Superwomen at the IRONMAN.
When Kaisa Lehtonen stood on the top step of the winner’s podium at the IRONMAN South Africa this year, her dream came true. She not only won her first long-distance IRONMAN, but also qualified automatically for the world championship in Kona on Hawaii. The competition at the original IRONMAN location takes place in October and is a mecca for triathletes.
Anja Beranek also competes on Hawaii. The German super athlete has had a passion for endurance sport since she learned to walk and has been successfully taking title after title since beginning her career in 2012, with no end in sight.
The V-Class as a sporty companion.
The combination of three sports, swimming, cycling and running is part of what inspires the athletes about the triathlon. Changing between disciplines during the races demands precision and everything has to go perfectly to prevent losing time. This changeover is a lot easier during training: The Mercedes-Benz V-Class is ideal for transporting the equipment. In addition, it also offers the athletes enough space to get changed when switching disciplines and also take a break during training.
