The VON BERG Family will make History at Ironman 70.3 World Nice
August 30, 2019
Rudy, Olympia, Maximilien & Rodolphe on the Start Line
Pro Rudy von Berg had already made history by racing with his father Rodolphe at IM 70.3 World in 2017, and joined by his sister Olympia at IM 70.3 World in 2018.
In 2 weeks, with the addition of Maximilien, the von Bergs will be 4, like the Musketeers.
Rudy von Berg, 25, representing the USA, will be one of the favorites after having repeated as IM 70.3 European Champion, ahead of Legend Javier Gomez. Other results are a 2nd at IM 70.3 Oceanside, a win at IM 70.3 St George, the North American Championship, and a 3rd at the Challenge Family Championship in Samorin. Coached by 2x Hawaii Winner Belgian Luc Van Lierde, Rudy’s aim is a Podium. He has partnered in 2019 with RYD, Colnago Bikes, DT Swiss, Ekoï, Sailfish, Infinit Nutrition, Speedsip & Altred.
Olympia von Berg, 29, racing for the USA in AG 25-29, has qualified by winning IM 70.3 Los Cabos 2018. She has also finished 2nd at both IM 70.3 St George and Cœur d’Alene. She is coached by David Tilbury-Davis. 9th at last year’s IM 70.3 World in South Africa, Olympia’s objective is a Top 5.
Maximilien von Berg, 32, also competing for the USA in AG 30-34, got his slot at IM 70.3 Madison by placing 6th. He then finished 11th at IM 70.3 European Elsinore and 7th at IM 70.3 Gdynia. He is the 2010 ITU LD Triathlon World AG 18-24 Champion. Having started to prepare only last April, he has no tangible expectations.
Their father, Rodolphe von Berg, 62, the 1986 USAT Ironman Champion and a 9x AG World Champion, representing Belgium, will race in AG 60-64, trying to retain his 2018 title.
