Mana Global is delighted to announce the signing of British triathlete Max Stapley to its athlete management roster.
From his impressive start at the Arena Games and a World Cup podium to a third place at the Ironman 70.3 Middle East Championships Bahrain, Stapley has been making waves in the sport this year.
His journey is one of resilience and growth, from representing Australia in his youth to now donning the Great Britain uniform. Born in France and raised in Canada and Australia, Stapley’s relentless pursuit of excellence in his chosen sport have led him all over the globe, finally basing out of Girona, Spain. When Australian passport troubles struck last year, the dual citizen continued competing under the World Triathlon flag before securing a spot on the Great Britain squad to help snatch silver in the mixed relay in Sunderland in July 2023.
Stapley’s journey with Mana began at the Pho3nix Sub7 and Sub8 Project powered by Zwift in 2022, where he was slated to support Joe Skipper during the swim leg of the race that would make Skipper the second man to go under 7 hours for a full distance triathlon. For Stapley, it was one of the best things in triathlon he had ever been part of and directly contributed to his decision to sign with Mana.
“I want to keep progressing,” he says. “I had a good 2023 although punctuated by a few accidents and crashes but I’ve shown signs of where I want to go. The Super League Triathlon series is going to be a huge thing for me this coming year. I think that’s the future of short-course triathlon.”
