After a struggling with two flat tires at Ironman Mont Tremblant and still managing a fifth place finish, and deciding to sit out the Ironman 70.3 World Championship this past weekend, Lionel Sanders has been hard at work making his push for his Kona debut in October. He recently posted the Kona training prep video below on his website in which he ramps up the heat and humidity in his pain cave. Famously, Sanders does most of his training indoors to maximize performance and control the environment to his liking.
The Ontario native recently signed with Infinite Nutrition to add to his arsenal for Kona. In his quest for success, Sanders underwent an hydration analysis at the University of Guelph with Dr. Lawrence Spriet and Mark Linseman and discovered how dehydrated he regularly gets. Infinit Canada CEO Darcy Haggith worked directly with Sanders and his coach, Barrie Shepley, to customize a fuelling strategy for racing in tough environmental conditions. Sanders joins other world-class Canadian athletes like Pan-Am Gold Medalist Melissa Bishop, Olympic Multi-Medalist Swimmer Ryan Cochrane, and Calgary Flames Defenseman Dougie Hamilton as the newest name on the Infinite team.
“I now realize that no matter how fit I am, my hydration and optimized nutrition are key to my success in triathlon and running,” said Lionel Sanders. “Working directly with Darcy Haggith and his Infinit Canada team, I am getting the nutrition knowledge and tools I need to race hard from the start to finish at the biggest Ironman events around the world,” said Sanders. All Infinit Nutrition Canada products are produced in Canada at Infinit Canada’s production facility in Windsor.
