Rolf Wermelinger (SUI), number 42 of the current Powerman World Ranking 2018/19
“I want to be in the top 10 in Zofingen”
In a series we present the top favourites of the 2019 Zofingen ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Championships. It’s Rolf Wermelingers’ turn today. The 40-year-old from Berne is the current number 42 in the Powerman World Ranking 2018/19. At the beginning of the season he invested a lot of time in his studies. “After the submission of my diploma thesis, I was able to make up for this gap in form and am aiming for a top 10 place in Zofingen.”
Rolf Wermelinger starts in Zofingen for the fourth time over the long distance. With rank 6, the 40-year-old Kirchenthurner achieved his best result so far. At the beginning of the season, the man from Berne invested a lot in his studies and was therefore still lagging behind in terms of form in spring. After the submission of his diploma thesis the student could make up for it. “Since the beginning of July I haven’t done any work and can focus fully on the preparation of the Powerman Zofingen.” Wermelinger’s last results were correspondingly good: 3rd place in the Powerman Tramelan (2nd place in the SM). 3rd place at the Zytturm Duathlon and 38th place overall at the GP Bern.
