Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (September 10, 2014) - IRONMAN Malaysia is back and bigger than ever! A field of 32 professional athletes will be among the 1374 strong field of athletes this September 27.
The event, a 3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42.2km run, marks the return of IRONMAN to the island after a three- year hiatus.
Headlining the professional field and the ambassador of the event is New Zealander, Cameron Brown. Brown is the holder of ten IRONMAN New Zealand titles. The 42-year-old added his 12th IRONMAN title by taking out the win at IRONMAN Cairns earlier this year, in the process becoming the oldest IRONMAN champion in history.
Brown lines up as the number one ranked athlete in the field and also the eldest professional with a bunch of younger legs in the form of Frederik Croneborg (SWE) and Luke Bell (AUS) looking to take the battle to the Kiwi in Langkawi where the temperature is predicted to be fiercely hot and humid.
In the Ladies field Germany’s Diana Riesler wears number one. On hot form and full of confidence after defending her IRONMAN Japan title last month, Taiwan’s Li Shiao Yu is looking forward to the challenge.
