About the TIMEX Multisport Team
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 9th 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 18 to 57-years old, and hailing from the U.S.A., Australia, India, Ukraine, Mexico, Czech Republic, Estonia, 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 2010 team boasts such well known names as USAT Triathlete of the Year, Chris Thomas; 2007 Ironman USA Champion Alex McDonald; USAT Collegiate Champion, Jessica Broderick; and 2009 Ironman Florida Champion, Kiril Kotsegharov.
