Leonid Boguslavsky

Establishing Super League Triathlon as the gold standard for triathlon will reshape the landscape of the sport and allow it to break new ground worldwide -- this is what Leonid Boguslavsky desires as his legacy. Super League’s closed-league concept truly elevates triathlon to the level of mainstream professional sport, while preserving the age-group participation component that sets triathlon apart from other sports.

A former professor with a Ph.D. in computer science, Leonid has published academic books and many papers on applied mathematics for computer networks and systems. Leonid also served as a senior partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He then became one of the most important players in Russia’s booming IT and Internet scene, founding companies in the USA, Europe, Russia, India and Southeast Asia.

Leonid fell in love with the sport of triathlon later in his life. Prior to 2013 he had never trained or done any sport, but once started has been since unstoppable. He has since accomplished multiple full distance Ironman finishes and 11 podiums, qualifying for the 2015 Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii.

Michael D’Hulst

As a latecomer to the sport with an outsider perspective on building triathlon events from the ground up, Michael D’Hulst envisions a better way of going about the sport through Super League Triathlon. He believes it has the potential to go the way of UFC and Formula 1 racing as a viscerally engaging and life-inspiring sport for spectators as well as participants.

After 10 years as an executive in purchasing, sales, and business development for an automotive industry giant, Michael got into sports as a break from the corporate world. He soon transitioned from merely participating to actively competing in over 70 international races, and qualifying for the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii in 2011 by winning his age group in Ironman Korea.

D’hulst decided to turn his passion into his business and life’s work, bringing in the first Challenge Family event in Asia and managing the Bahrain Endurance Vision as its COO.
