“I’m expecting things to improve in training in the first part of the year,” said Igor. “We can already see an evolution and I think it’s going to be a bit better for Brasília.” “It will certainly be the strongest year of Ironman 70.3 in Brasilia and with a well-balanced race, I hope I can get another good result,” he added.
Other highlights in the male are goiano Santiago Ascenço, fourth last year and winner of 70.3 in Penha (SC) twice, the Paraná Guilherme Manocchio, Ironman Brazil Fortaleza 2014 champion, and the São Paulo Fabio Carvalho, placed first in the 70.3 Foz Of Iguaçu last season.

The athlete also comes from a good result, as she won on Sunday the opening stage of the 25th Triathlon Brazil Trophy. “It served as a training, since my goal this year is to fight for the title in Brasilia.
