Argon 18 is proud to announce the signing of a partnership agreement with some of triathlon's brightest lights:
World Champions Leon Griffin (Australia) and Terenzo Bozzone (New Zealand) as well as Canadian Magali Tisseyre. The three-year deals (2013-2015) promise a close collaboration between Argon 18 and some of triathlon's most ambitious and successful athletes.
Over the past few years, Leon Griffin has established a strong presence at the world's most prestigious races. Coming up in the duathlon world where he scored a world championship title in his first year as a pro, 31-year old Griffin lost no time in his transition to Ironman racing. He has overcome injuries that have slowed his otherwise quick progress in this discipline. Now back on top form, he has set his sights squarely on the most prestigious of events: Ironman Hawaii. With the support of Argon 18, he is pulling out all the stops in his quest for victory.
Terenzo Bozzone has a gift: everything he touches turns to gold. Born in South Africa but raised in New Zealand, this 27-year old prodigy holds 22 national championship titles in swimming, track and field, cycling, duathlon and triathlon. As an accomplished and diverse athlete, he finds triathlon to be the perfect vehicle for his many talents. Crowned Junior World Champion in 2002 and 2003, Terenzo Bozzone reached the holy grail in 2008 when he won the 70.3 world championship in the senior category. His new alliance with Argon 18 will help him fully develop his tremendous potential in the biggest events across the world and work toward, transforming effort and discipline into shiny gold metal.
Chosen as Triathlète Magazine's Ironman 70.3 Athlete of the Year for 2009 while still in her first year as a pro, 30-year old Magali Tisseyre joins Argon 18 with the stated aim of becoming Ironman World Champion. Magali has already reached the podium twice, with 3rd place finishes in 2009 and 2010. An accomplished violinist, Magali was definitely making sweet music in 2012 with four Ironman victories (including Mt.-Tremblant) and she is ready for an encore in 2013. As she readily admits: “I'm attracted to the impossible”. While no one is asking for the impossible, we won't at all be surprised to see amazing performances from Magali Tisseyre.
