In 2001, Timex made a bold move in the historically individualized sport, by pioneering a triathlon team. The concept was to support professional and amateur athletes—financially, physically and socially—so they could, in turn, focus solely on training and racing.
Now in its 12th year, the Timex Multisport Team is a diverse and successful team, composed of male and female athletes—both professional and amateur—ranging in age from 23 to 65 years old, and hailing from the United States, Australia, Ukraine, Mexico, Sweden, Germany, Canada and the United Kingdom.
The athletes serve as brand ambassadors for Timex and associated sponsors at hundreds of events around the world, and work closely with Timex on refining new products for the endurance sports world.
The 2013 team boasts such well-known names as 11-time Ironman champion Viktor Zyemtsev; 2012 Ironman Canada champion Matt Russell; 2012 Ironman Louisville runner up Jackie Arendt, 2012 USAT Masters Triathlete of the year Chris Thomas and a member of the first Ironman in Hawaii in 1978 Dave Orlowski (3rd place).
