Bahrain Endurance warms up for world championships

Thursday, August 20, 2015, 04:39 AM GMT

Terenzo Bozzone and Fredrik Croneborg will test their world championship form this weekend at Ironman 70.3 Budapest and Ironman 70.3 Bintan, respectively.

 It is Bozzone’s first time in Hungary, and Ironman 70.3 Budapest is a last-minute tune-up before next week’s Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Zell am See, Austria. His wife Kelly gave birth to their son Cavallo four weeks ago, but this hasn’t put the brakes on Bozzone’s preparations. “It has been life-changing and a very exciting time,” Bozzone says. “Training has been going great and I am looking forward to seeing where things are at leading into the world championships.”

 Croneborg is preparing for the Ironman World Championship by racing the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Bintan in Indonesia. He is no stranger to the race course, having taken third place twice at the full-distance event that was previously held on the island. He says, “Bintan is easily accessible from Phuket and it’s a nice location with hot and humid weather conditions, which I like. I hope I can do a good race there and at the same time use it as preparation for Kona.”
