Exclusive Feature - The Germans are coming
Welcome to our Exclusive Video feature where every Wednesday we bring you footage from behind the scenes of the ITU racing. We feature the athletes, places and even some exclusive features on the people behind the scenes. This week we bring you the inside line from one of the strongest nations in the sport: Germany.
Earlier this year ITU caught up with Olympic champion Jan Frodeno and 2007 world champion Daniel Unger as they underwent some tough training at a special camp in the south of Spain. Despite being fierce rivals out on the course, Frodeno and Unger make for quite the training partnership, pushing each other throughout the training sessions before relaxing in the evenings.
See how the pair escape the pressures of being two of the world’s top triathletes as they refocus for the competitive Dextro Energy Triathlon – ITU World Championship Series whilst taking an inside look at their forty hour training weeks from Sierra Nevada.
Watch all the exclusive features from 2009 by signing up to watch the back catalogue of magazine television programmes from the year at www.triathlon.org/tv
Check back next Wednesday exclusively here on triathlon.org for the next installment when we visit the ITU Sport Development team as they prepare their athletes in the last few days before an event.
