ZEROD is delighted to announce that it has recruited double Olympic Medallist Rebecca Romero MBE as its first UK brand ambassador. Already working with leading triathletes across the world, including ITU World Cup winner Kris Gemmell, ZEROD were keen to work with Rebecca as she takes on her third sport and with it Ironman UK in July.

Tim Williams of Avalanche Sports Marketing who is distributing ZEROD in the UK said: "When we discovered that Rebecca was embarking upon triathlon, we were keen to work with her. Our brand is all about the passionate triathlete and Rebecca is certainly that. She is using her years of experience as an Olympic athlete in two sports and is applying them to her Ironman training. I am sure that she will inspire many would-be triathletes as well as the more experienced competitor."

Rebecca, who is combining her training with studying for an MSc and setting up a performance centre, saw that ZEROD was a good match for her: "When I met the ZEROD team at the Triathlon Show last month, I was impressed by their passion for the sport and for creating a brand with a focus on getting all the small details right, making for a great quality product. Having swam in the Vanguard wetsuit in Dorney Lake at 8am in four degrees Celsius last week, I know that these details matter! I am looking forward to testing out the kit for real in May when I compete in Ironman Mallorca 70.3."

In addition to a wetsuit range, there are three ZEROD triathlon suits, the oSUIT (for sprint and Olympic distance), the iSUIT (for middle distance and full ironman) & the uSUIT (a suit for all distances).

ZEROD is available in the UK from Wiggle and Chain Reaction Cycles.
