I am very excited to join ITU for this seminar to play a part in encouraging fitness and well being in the corporate world, says Jenny Thompson, four-time Olympian and multiple gold medallist, turned leader and motivator.
Joining these two in Cancun will be best-selling author and health expert Crystal Andrus, who has shared the stage with Dr. Phil and other healthy living gurus, as well as One Percent for the Planet Executive Director, Terry Kellogg. Terry has worked at the intersection of business and the environment for more than ten years.
ITU will add its own stars to the line up including former world champion and triathlon legend Emma Carney from Australia, and Olympian Barb Lindquist from the United States as well as two top World Cup athletes, Mark Fretta and Richard Stannard.
Our goal is to provide a team building environment where professionals from around the world will share ideas and expertise to promote healthy living and fitness in the workplace, said Loreen Barnett, Executive Director of the ITU. We are thrilled to offer such a seminar and lineup of dynamic experts in the field.
The Corporate World Championships will be held following the seminar and will be a team event with a team consisting of three people. A team will choose from one of two race categories: each member completes a 500m swim, 13km bike and a 3.3km run in succession; or one member will swim 1,500m, one member will bike 40km and one member will run 10km.
The Corporate Championships will be part of the Cancun BG Triathlon World Cup Festival, a celebration of sport, fitness, fun and culture in Mexicos most popular holiday resort.
