MANA Sports and Entertainment Group welcomes Ironman Asia Pacific champion Amelia Rose Watkinson to its roster of managed athletes.
The 2020 Ironman Asia Pacific title holder and multiple middle distance triathlon winner from New Zealand believes by working with MANA she can take her professional career to the next level. She says, “As athletes we have big goals. To execute them on the world stage we need a great team around us. MANA has home roots in my part of the world while being a global entity and well-connected.”
Her primary touchpoint with MANA was through the Pho3nix Sub8 Project, Powered by Zwift where she took on cycling and running pacer duties for Nicola Spirig’s attempt to go under 8 hours in the full distance of triathlon. “I like that in the event space they’re creating opportunities to raise the bar and put growth into the sport; this aligns with my ambitions as an athlete.”
