LA ProAm Lineup Announced

As part of the Professional Triathlon Organization (PTO)’s new 2022 event schedule, the ProAm race is scheduled for May 15th with the Herbalife24 Los Angeles Triathlon. ProAm will include 10 teams of athletes from the Challenge Athletes Foundation who will then be handed off to professional teammates who will pass the baton to celebrity runners. The pros announced this week are: Gustav Iden, Jan Frodeno, Lionel Sanders, Daniel Baekegard, Sam Long, Laura Philipp, Heather Jackson, Skye Moench, Holly Lawrence and Paula Findlay. However, Frodino has since announced that he will be withdrawing from the Ironman World Championship due to a partial torn Achilles tendon. It’s unclear if he’ll also retire from the Los Angeles Triathlon and who will replace him.

Kat Mathews at Sub8

Another announcement: After Lucy Charles-Barclay was forced out of the Ironman World Championships and the Phoenix Sub7/Sub8 program due to a stress fracture in her hip, there’s been a lot of speculation about who will move into her Sub8 spot. The rumors have settled. British rising star Kat Matthews will continue her Ironman World Championship debut in May and attempt to break the 8-hour iron distance in June. The attempt will be on the German track and will allow for drafting and some technical advancements. It will be broadcast live and Charles Barclays is expected to participate as commentator now.
