At Ironman Switzerland three athletes running in Ons finish on the podium and at 5150 in Marseille Frederik Van Lierde becomes 2nd.

It was her Ironman debut and her name will not be forgotten for a long time. TeamTBB athlete Céline Schärer from Switzerland showes a fantastic race and finishes the Ironman in Zurich on second position. What a fantastic Ironman debut.

This race in Zurich was also the first Ironman race for On athlete Emma Pooley who finishes on 5th position.

Céline's team fellow Per Bittner showed an incredible run. At KM 34 he overtook Maxim Kriat from Ukraine and finishes the IM Switzerland on the podium.

At the same time in Marseille, On athlete and winner of Ironman Nice Frederik Van Lierde finishes the 5150 on second position, only 15 seconds behind. As already in Nice Frederike had the best run split: "Finishing 2nd is never fun", Frederik says after the race, "but I am really happy with my run. The most important for me, was that I worked succesfully on my run speed. Now I continue working towards Hawaii."

The Ironman World Championships in Kona are scheduled for October 12th and Frederik is certainly among the favorites. 

A big cheer and congratulations from the whole On team to all On athletes perfoming so greatly in the heat. And thanks for running On shoes!
