It was an exciting weekend for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation Germany/Austria as more than €20,000 was raised as part of the 70.3-Triathlon World Championship of IRONMAN.
The highlight of the weekend was once again the Laureus Sport for Good Night, which was hosted by IRONMAN and saw many members of the Laureus Family and current triathletes get together, all for a great cause.
Laureus Academy Member Franz Klammer and Laureus Ambassadors Jan Frodeno, Jens Lehmann, Felix Gottwald, Martin Braxenthaler and Kathi Wörndl not only to introduced Laureus to all the guests, but also donated to the Laureus Foundation to help projects in Germany and Austria.
Also attending was professional triathlete Timo Bracht from TEAM SPORT FOR GOOD. This successful triathlon team is committed to Laureus and uses its prominence to draw attention to the work of the Laureus Foundation.
A special mention has to go to 50 year-old Austrian former goalkeeper Otto Konrad who has been preparing for months to run the 70.3-mile distance of the IRONMAN. By participating, Konrad also supported the work of the Laureus Foundation and collected €7542 for the Laureus-supported Austrian projects.
And to top it all off, Laureus Ambassador Jan Frodeno actually won the World Championship title, and Julian Beuchelt from TEAM SPORT FOR GOOD also won the title in his 18-24 age group.
