Jürgen career:

"My highlights are winning my age groups 2007 in Frankfurt and 2008 in Wisconsin. Winning the half distances in Linz and Vienna in 2010 - both in new record times - and of course my third place at Tristar 111 Germany in June.

And also my running which improved very quickly. My best was 38min on 10k in 2006. 3 years later, at the end of 2009, my fastest 10k is 30:58min. More results and highlights will come! ;)

But beside those things I am really proud of being an ambassador for Tristar, in my first year as a professional, next to athletes like Chris Mccormack, Lothar Leder, Nicole Leder and Ain Alar Juhanson... 3 years ago I wouldn’t even dare to think about things like that!"

Andreas Fuchs

Sport has always been the main focus in Andreas Fuchs life. As a child, he practiced in athletics and became state champion in cross country. At 20 he made ​​his first marathon in a time of 3 hours and 4 minutes. At 21 he moved to Styria, where he still lives. In 2000, Fuchs first saw a report on the Hawaii Ironman on television and the decision was clear: "I would become a triathlete." Through hard work and iron discipline, he improved from year to year and finally was crowned two-time national champion of the Ironman distance.

Andreas Fuchs is not a man of quick success. Its successes are the result of hard and continuous work, its development over the past 10 years, and his steady improvement in small steps shows his absolute credibility.
