Earlier this year, Breitling introduced the 'squad' based on a challenging concept. Three outstanding candidates hailing from the same industry, who have reached the pinnacles of their professions, will be grouped together by the luxury watch brand to work together on specially
selected endeavours. So far, Breitling had introduced three squads: Cinema, Explorers, and Surfers.
Today, Breitling launched the Triathlon squad: a group of three worthy triathletes with an extraordinary range of talents. Breitling CEO Georges Kern points out that the squad concept is a perfect fit for the brand, saying: “At Breitling, we believe in the power of a team, the strength of a group, and the mutual identification of a common target, which ultimately leads to success. We’ve already had the pleasure of introducing some elite squads from the worlds of acting, exploration, and surfing, and I’m particularly excited about the Triathlon Squad. We have already chosen an amazing mission for them and they’ll have the chance to do well while doing good.”
The Triathlon squad includes, German triathlete and the first triathlete – male or female – to win both the Olympic triathlon gold medal and the Ironman World Championship title – Jan Frodeno. Next up, we have, Chris “Macca” McCormack, an Australian triathlete who distinguished himself with two Ironman World Championship titles (2007 and 2010) and wins in the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Cup Series, Olympic Distance World Championships, and Long Distance Triathlon World Championships. The third and final squad member is Daniela Ryf. One of the world’s most successful and celebrated triathletes, Ryf won the Ironman World Championship in 2015, 2016, and 2017, and the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in 2014, 2015, and 2017.
