KOREA’S FINEST DUATHLETES TO TAKE TO THE START LINE OF THE DESCENTE LONDON DUAHTLON

 

We are delighted to announce that this year at the Descente London Duathlon, we will be joined on the start line by 6 of South Korea’s most esteemed duathletes and we couldn’t be more excited.

Thanks to our title partner Descente, we will be lucky enough to have the four male and two female athletes take to the start line in Richmond Park on Sunday 16 September to show us what they are made of. All of them have a fantastic racing history and are here to challenge the very best from the UK. Descente are flying the athletes over with the express intention of these great racers being able to shake it up on the podium.

Among the group is Ji-Ho Lee, a 31-year-old duathlete that has an impressive race history. In 2018, he took home the gold medal in the Songdo Descente Duathlon and also claimed the top spot in the Incheon Triathlon and the Ludibelt Ultra Aquathlon. He has grown in talent over the years and is getting ready to join us on the start line in London and has set his sights set on a win. Ji-Ho Lee said “I’m excited to come and race in the 2018 London Duathlon and I want to take home the win. I’m even aiming to set a new course record”. He’s certainly one to watch!

Alongside Ji-Ho Lee we also have 44-year-old Sun-Ju Lee taking to the start line as she hopes to add another title to her hugely successful year. Sun-Ju Lee also took home the gold medal at the 2018 Songdo Descente Duathlon and came in a respectful 4th at the Incheon Michuhol Race Master. Sun-Ju Lee’s focus has now switched to the Descente London Duathlon where she hopes she’ll peak at just the right time. Sun-Ju Lee said “I have been training hard for the 2018 London Duathlon and I hope that everything will come together for me in September. I really believe this could be my best racing performance of the year”. Sun-Ju Lee sounds like she’s ready to go…we’ll find out in 3 weeks' time.
