Do3 Coaching under starters orders for best season yet
High profile sponsors set new benchmark for local triathlon squad
Do3 Coaching (www.do3coaching.com), The Midlands respected triathlon squad, has revealed a new headline sponsor and supporters as the 2019 triathlon season gets under way.
The headline sponsor and two new sponsor partners draw on Do3’s values of sportsmanship, camaraderie and inclusivity and have been selected to help support athletes and to widen the awareness and reach of the squad in the UK and Europe.
- Headline sponsor, Everyone Active, is one of the UK’s leading leisure operators and its three centres in Stratford on Avon, Warwick and Solihull are the focus for regular weekly coached squad swims. The new agreement will also provide Do3 members with benefits designed to support their training and racing goals.
- New sponsor Thanyapura Health and Sports Resort is Asia’s premier healthy holiday destination. Located close to Phuket international airport, Thanyapura is dedicated to promoting active living and healthy lifestyles through sports and wellness. The resort is used by international professional athletes and national squads and was the recent base for Do3’s spring residential training camp.
- Further sponsor partner, Yonda Sports, supplies quality wetsuits and triathlon kit. The company specialises in the design, creation and manufacture of pioneering products for athletes, swimmers and triathletes around the world. Yonda will design and create Do3’s new kit with the objective of maximising visibility of all sponsor logos while balancing athletes’ comfort and performance.
Additional Do3 supporters for 2019 include Xendurance, health & wellness products; Swans pro-swimwear; Veloforte, performance nutrition and specialist UK cycling chain, Cycle Republic. Long-standing associate Shires Physio will continue to support athletes conditioning and Triggerfish will back the squad through media relations.
Do3 has again raised the bar with early season duathlon wins and top tens; at the inaugural Moreton Morrell Duathlon, Do3 females took all three podium places. In 2018 two athletes raced at the triathlon World Championships, 17 competitors qualified to take part in European Championships events and the squad achieved 43 podium places in the UK. Head Coach Dave Knight was commended in the UK’s top 3 triathlon coaches and fellow coach Corinne Moss was named as runner up in 220 Triathlon’s Age Group Triathlete of the Year Awards.
Dave Knight, head coach comments, ‘We are indebted to our sponsors and to the support and kudos they lend. We continue to grow as a collective of keen triathletes from The Midlands. Integral to our success is that, like our sport, we are inclusive and welcome all levels. Each member of squad is proud to race in their kit and with the added gravitas our new sponsors bring; there will be yet more winning smiles as people cross their own personal finishing lines’.
Do3 is mentored and managed by Dave Knight and is made up of over 200 Midlands-based athletes; from triathlon enthusiasts and international age group competitors to professional athletes. Squad members are given access to a dedicated app that manages swim and run sessions, contains up-coming events, leader boards, rewards and special offers.
