With less than six months to go before the annual swim-bike-run race in the island of the Gods, BIZNET Bali International Triathlon welcomes two of the biggest names in the international triathlon stage and Indonesia sports history.

Three-time Ironman champion and 2009 World Championship runner-up, Chris Lieto, has confirmed his participation at the upcoming BIZNET Bali International Triathlon 2013. An American pro-triathlete, Lieto is also the founder of More than Sport, an organization for ambassador athletes contributing back to the communities in which they race.

In 2013, through partnership with BIZNET Bali International Triathlon, Lieto and More than Sport will work together with the Bali Sports Foundation to benefit less privileged children in Bali, Papua and Eastern Indonesia. "Bali Sports Foundation is honored to join a worldwide sports charity such as ‘More than Sports’ and the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon team in helping young Indonesians with disabilities achieve their dreams through sport.” said Rodney Holt, founder of Bali Sports Foundation.

Another celebrity athlete rejoining the race for the 7th year is Indonesian swimming legend, Richard Sam Bera. Bera, a three-time Olympian, four-time All-American at Arizona State University and editor-in-chief for a leading men’s lifestyle magazine, has confirmed his participation to be in BIZNET Bali International Triathlon on June 23.

Bera’s love for the sport of triathlon traces back to his competitive swimming days, but was only able to focus on racing triathlons at his retirement. Richard Sam Bera has now competed in several triathlon races in the region, including several of long distance triathlons. A great ambassador for the sport in Indonesia, he has contributed to the growing popularity of triathlon in the Country.

Bera will be joined by the next generation of Indonesian triathletes in Bali. Familiar names in Indonesia’s multi-sport race circuit, such as Kadri Regar, M. Taufik and Oki Rohmat are expected at next BIZNET Bali International Triathlon race.

The 2012 BIZNET Bali International Triathlon Indonesian male champion, Andy Wibowo, will also return to defend his title. Wibowo started his career as Indonesian national swimmer and won several international competitions.

Online registration for the race is open and special accommodation offers are also available for limited time.
