Kona Diary, Days 4 & 5

While the On team is happy chatting with customers at the booth, the On athletes get more and more focused on their task ahead.

The big day and triathlon's most iconic race is approaching fast. While the On team is busy dealing with all visitors at the On booth, our athletes are getting more and more focused on the race. 

All our athletes stepped by at the On booth to say hello several times: current Ironman World Champion, Frederik Van Lierde, still calm and relaxed as we know him. Next to interviews and training, he is trying to enjoy the beautiful scenery and his family. 

Kyle Buckingham: his first year as a pro in Kona. Charming as hell and definitely a name to remember.

Our female heroes: Caroline Steffen, aka Xena the Warrior Princess, who is definitely keen on winning and Mary Beth Ellis, who as a newcomer set new standards for the US Ironman women.

Thanks for your confidence in the On shoes and for calling them your secret weapon. May they fly you to the finish line on Saturday!
