Super League › About Super League Triathlon
Super League Triathlon (SLT) is the world’s premier swim-bike-run Series, pitching the very best athletes against each other in quick and exciting race formats in fantastic destinations across the globe. The Championship Series takes place from August-November with the best triathletes on the planet doing battle over game-changing formats which are redefining the sport for a modern audience. Super League’s SLT Arena Games is a dynamic new format that blends in real life and virtual racing to deliver an immersive viewing experience via a unique partnership with Zwift.
If you’re not moving forwards, if you’re not pushing the envelope or testing what is possible then in reality you’re not just standing still – you’re sliding backwards.
Super League’s driving force is a triathlete who has vast experience in the sports sector. Michael started his career in the automotive industry before turning his passion into his career, spending a year as a full-time athlete and establishing a long-distance event in Taiwan. He has worked with Chris McCormack at Thanyapura in Thailand and the pair set up Bahrain Endurance 13 as well as Super League Triathlon.
Speed is youth, long-distance racing is for retired people with time on their hands – if you want excitement, if you want the best athletes in the world pushing themselves beyond what any of us think possible, then you have to move away from long distance and think differently.
In every debate of the greatest triathletes of all time, Macca is discussed after a glittering professional racing career that saw him win the Ironman World Championship twice, as well as numerous short course titles, including the ITU World Cup Series. Since retiring from racing, Chris has forged a successful business career with numerous interests in the sporting sector.
Triathlon is the most demanding sport on the planet, with athletes competing at the highest level over multiple distances. Having competed in many races and always crossed the finishing line, you build up a certain resilience. Once you’ve pushed through these barriers, it’s possible to transfer this mindset into the business world. Hours and hours of training to hit goals in races are just like identifying business objectives and applying steadfast determination to succeed.
