Team TYR Athlete Ashley Twichell Dominates Open Water Festival10k to Win National Title

A.Twichell_PressRelease (1)Seal Beach, CA — April 11, 2016 —This past week team TYR athlete and 2x Open Water World Championship Medalist Ashley Twichell turned heads in her Avictor at the Open Water Festival 10k race in Miromar Lakes, FL.

Racing alongside some of the world’s highest ranked open water swimmers, Ashley edged out ahead with an impressive time of 2:01:51.78 to win the national championship title. Charging past the second place finisher in the last 10 meters of the race, she was determined to bring home a win. Touching just before the rest of the stacked international pack, Ashley proved that nothing will stop her from making it to the top. With this recent win under her belt, she continues to build confidence and momentum heading into pool Olympic trials.

“I’ve been focusing more on the pool this season, so to come in and win against an international star-studded field was really exciting,” began Twichell. “The six women placing 2nd-7th behind me will all be competing in the 10K in Rio, all with a high likelihood of being medalists. I took a bit of a risk by leading for the majority of the race, but was still able to find another gear that last 300 meters. I had speed at the end of the race that I’ve never really had before, which gives me a lot of confidence going into pool Olympic Trials.”

JoshAmberger

Seal Beach, CA- March 24, 2016- TYR Sport is proud to announce the re-signing of 4x IRONMAN 70.3 Champion Josh Amberger to its roster of sponsored athletes.

Having leapt into the world of professional triathlons at just 18 years of age, Josh Amberger certainly knows a thing or two about hard work. Winning his first IRONMAN 70.3 in Singapore after having only raced the distance once prior, he has since taken home two wins at 70.3 Port Macquarie, as well as an impressive win at 70.3 Western Sydney.

With podium finishes in races all over the globe, Josh is recognized within the sport for both his impressive swim and equally top-notch cycling. No stranger to winning first out of water accolades, this Australian sensation has only begun to leave his mark on the sport. Most recently, he placed 2nd at Dubai 70.3 and 3rd at Geelong 70.3.

“I couldn’t be happier to be working with TYR for another two seasons. This will be my 4th consecutive year with the brand and they are an integral part of my success.  From swimming laps at my training pool to throwing down the fastest swims on the racecourse, TYR has me covered. I can look forward to using the Freak of Nature wetsuit and Torque Pro Swimskin in many more IRONMAN 70.3 events, Escape from Alcatraz and my debut IRONMAN attempt forthcoming in May.”

MattC_SigningSeal Beach, CA- March 7th 2016- TYR Sport is proud to announce the re-signing of 3X IRONMAN 70.3 Champion Matt Chrabot to its roster of sponsored athletes.

Since beginning his career as a professional triathlete in 2006, Matt Chrabot has been the one to watch.  With a history of titles that include 2X U.S. National Champion- ITU Distance, 2X ITU World Cup Winner, 2X Pan American Champion and alternate for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team, it’s safe to assume he has no interest in slowing down.  Scoring a recent win at IRONMAN 70.3 St. Croix, as well as earning second place finishes at IM 70.3 New Orleans, IM 70.3 Raleigh, IM 70.3 Racine and IRONMAN Chattanooga, Matt is gearing up for an exciting 2016.

TYR Sport Signs 4X Olympic Gold Medalist Dana Vollmer

D.Vollmer_Signing_PRESSRELEASE (2)Seal Beach, CA — February 4, 2016 — TYR Sport is proud to announce the signing of 4X Olympic Gold Medalist Dana Vollmer to its roster of sponsored athletes.

At just twelve years old Dana began her quest for Olympic success as the youngest swimmer to compete in the 2000 Olympic trials. In 2004, her dream became a reality when she earned her first Olympic gold medal as a member of the 4x200m free relay in Athens. Making history, she and her teammates swam fast enough to break the seventeen-year-old world record. In 2012 she was at it again, this time winning three gold medals and setting two world records at the London Olympic Games. It was here that Dana became the first woman to ever swim the 100m butterfly in under 56 seconds.

Having become a mother less than a year ago, Dana is more motivated than ever to once again leave her mark on the world’s stage. Taking home the gold in the 100m butterfly at winter nationals, this TYR athlete is a “momma on a mission” and Omaha is where she’s headed.

“It’s all about finding the right fit,” began Vollmer. “Learning to be a mom and getting back in the pool have taught me to trust my instincts. The first race I swam in the TYR suit, I knew it was right for me. Then I met the team of TYR athletes and employees and there was no doubt that I was in the right spot. I’m excited to represent TYR on my journey back to the Olympic stage.”

However, the road to success has been far from easy for team TYR’s newest champion. With her fair share of injuries and a late diagnosis of food allergies, she continues to fight for every medal she earns. Priding herself on an ability to maintain a positive outlook, Dana refuses to let any hardship, large or small, deter her from her ultimate goal. In the past, she has worked with the American Heart Association to raise awareness about heart conditions in both women and children, and she has proudly spoken at events regarding food allergy research & education.

“I speak on behalf of the entire TYR family when I say we are incredibly excited to welcome Dana Vollmer to our roster of sponsored athletes,” said Matt DiLorenzo, Chief Executive Officer of TYR Sport. “She is an inspiration in and out of the pool, and we cannot wait to see her succeed in 2016.”

TYR Sport Re-Signs 4X IRONMAN World Champion Chrissie Wellington

C.Wellington_Resign_PRESSRELEASE (1)

Seal Beach, CA — February 1, 2016— TYR Sport is proud to announce the re-signing of 4X IRONMAN World Champion Chrissie Wellington to its roster of brand ambassadors.

Joining the professional circuit in 2007, Chrissie made history when she won her first world championship title in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii that very same year. Taking the triathlon world by storm, the rookie turned champion completed her marathon with the then second fastest time recorded by a woman on the Kona course. With momentum from one of the sport’s greatest upsets, Chrissie continued to write history. Returning to Kona in 2008 she maintained her title as IRONMAN World Champion, setting a new marathon course record of 2:57:44. The following October Wellington earned herself a three-peat, winning in Hawaii with a new course record of 8:54:02.

In 2011, Wellington once again did the unthinkable. Revisiting the Kona course just two weeks after a bike crash, she fought to win her fourth title with torn pectoral and intercostal muscles, severe bruising and road rash. Chrissie finished the race in 8:55:08, just about a minute behind her record-breaking time in 2009. Once the highest ranked woman on Esquire Magazine’s list of “50 Best Athletes Right Now,” Wellington came out above some of the world’s most recognized athletes. In 2012, Chrissie began to promote her autobiography A Life Without Limits.

“I have been a part of the wonderful TYR family since my first world championship win in 2007, and I am delighted to continue to work with them in the coming year. With the birth of our daughter, Esme, my husband and I are thrilled to explore the new direction our life has taken. However, one thing remains the same- our passion for the water. I look forward to getting back in the pool and open water, to flying the TYR flag with pride and to raising my daughter to be a little TYR warrior.”

 “Chrissie is the true embodiment of a champion,” began Matt DiLorenzo, Chief Executive Officer of TYR Sport. “We have loved to share in her success as one of the world’s most incredible triathletes, and we look forward to continuing to work with her throughout her career.”
