The German triathlete Jan Frodeno, who won his country’s first triathlon gold medal at the Beijing Olympics in August 2008, has confirmed that he will compete in this year’s Laguna Phuket Triathlon Race of Legends in Phuket on 6 December 2009.

In Beijing Frodeno edged out the pre race favourites in an exciting sprint finish to win a surprise gold medal. Frodeno has also recently struck a gold win in the ITU World Championship Series in Yokohama.

Making his debut in Phuket, Frodeno’s presence will add to the excitement as he battles it out with Australian defending champion Richie Cunningham and 2007 Laguna Phuket Triathlon champion, Massimo Cigana from Italy.

Laguna’s reigning women’s champion Belinda Granger of Australia will defend her crown following her maiden victory last year. Just three months after surgery on her Iliac artery, Granger returned to competition in style claiming victory in the Honolulu Ironman 70.3, and pushing 2006 Ironman 70.3 World Champion Samantha McGlone into second place. Granger’s dynamism and winning spirit has also awarded her a recent second place in the Subaru Ironman Canada.

Apart from an exciting pro race, race organisers also anticipate the largest field ever at the Laguna Phuket Triathlon 2009. For the fifth consecutive year entries to the individual race have completely sold out with 950 individual athletes registered. In addition, 50 teams will be taking part in the team relay and there are still places left to enter the 6k Fun Run.
