Melanie Maurer: Powerman Greece was one of the most attractive to me.
Melanie Maurer from Switzerland is first at Powerman World Rankings and vice world Champion of 2018 and she will be in Loutraki for Powerman Greece at 24.03.2018. Melanie is one of the greatest duathletes of the world and we are exciting that she will participate in our event. Look how she feels about that:
What did motivate you to register at POWERMAN Greece 2019?
I have never been in Greece before and I am always excited to race a new course with some of the best athletes in the world. There are so many Powerman races on which I’d really love to start, but Greece was one of the most attractive to me.
As we see, the past years you’ve raced short and long distance duathlon races going great at both categories. Which one do you prefer and why
I like the middle distance the most, because you don’t have to hurry as much as in a sprint distance race but also you only suffer only a little more than 3 hours. At the moment I don’t like long distance races that much, but my hair is getting greyer everyday and maybe with that also my love for the longer races grows. 😉
How many hours do you spend in training every week?
What are your expectations for the Powerman Greece and from the 2019 season?
I rarely have expectations concerning races or a whole season. I always give my best and I’m really excited to see how good my best will be.
