Michael Ott (SUI), number 28 of the current Powerman World Ranking 2018/19
“I want to fight in Zofingen for the best podium places”
In a series we present the top favourites of the 2019 Zofingen ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Championships. It’s Michael Ott’s turn today. The 37-year-old from Zurich is the current number 28 in the Powerman World Ranking 2018/19. So far Ott has had a very successful season and he has an appetite for more. “I want to fight in Zofingen for the best places on the podium.”
So far the season has gone better than expected and the results are also pleasing. Michael Ott became Swiss Champion Duathlon over the short and medium distance, won the Powerman Tramelan, reached place 12 at the GP Bern “and except Gürbenthal I won all races of the Eisenhorn Swiss Duathlon Series”. Ott is a part-time sportsman, still works 50 percent as a carpenter and comes from running. He has competed three times in Zofingen so far: 2006 over the long distance (61st place), 2007 and 2008 over the short distance. “I want to be on the podium for the best places on September 8th”, the 37-year-old from Zurich makes me sit up and take notice.
