Martin started triathlon at 13 years old. At 16, he made the national junior team in Chile, and has been racing on the international circuit ever since. Martin has 6 appearances in World Championships (Junior & U23) and several World Cup starts. Making the move in 2019 to the 70.3 distance, he has been able to get on the podium and have 4 top 5 performances. In 2022, Martin will be looking to be based out of North Country San Diego. He is planning to be racing in the USA from April to October. Martin’s team firmly believes he will be finishing consistently in the top 5 of every 70.3 distance race he competes in.

Nicolas was born with a rare genetic disease called Aniridia, and at a young age, sports were not easy for him. However, he soon realized that the passion for running was in him. As a teenager, he focused on the 400m and in adulthood, despite national titles in the Paralympics and regional titles, his career took a different turn. He is mostly motivated by the world around him and the prospect of discovering and creating something new each day.
For many years he was fascinated by the triathlon and the announcement that this category would be introduced for the first time at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games inspired him to pursue it. From climbing Snowdon solo to competing in multiple regional and national championships, Nicolas Dewalque is a man on a mission and refuses to be bound by his visual impairment. His quest is to discover and create new experiences each day.

Robert was born with a birth defect called Fibular Hemimelia. His mother made a hard decision when he was 10 months old to amputate his leg. Growing up wasn’t easy, not only growing up with a disability but as a victim of various traumatic situations. As a young man, he had to adapt PMA (“Positive Mental Attitude”). Robert used sports as a way to show people ‘what I can’ do instead of ‘what I can’t’. Robert quotes “Triathlon has not only helped me train my body but also my mind. “ In his spare time, he became a speaker and founded a non-profit Limb Kind. He helps others embrace the disability, and his voice for the disabled has been inspirational to everyone. In just a year he was able to make his way up the ranks from Amateur to Elite and continue to not only progress but inspire others along the way. His motto is “Anything’s Possible”.

At 62 years old I have spent the last 45 years training and racing in either swimming, running or triathlons and most recently ultra and extreme events including the new Ötillö type SwimRun events.
I train year-round with 100% of my swimming done in open water in the Atlantic ocean. We have several months in the winter where the water never rises above 60°F16.5°c This year I’ve had the pleasure of swimming in Sumarpo wetsuits. Compared to what I have used in the past Sumarpo wetsuits are more durable, warmer for racing, putting them on and taking them off is much easier and faster.
My 2022 racing season is just beginning to shape up, my next race will be the Saint Anthony’s Olympic triathlon in the Tampa area. I believe that my Sumarpo wetsuit will help me take a step to the next level.
I’m 42 years old and I don’t have any sporting background. Ten years ago, I started to enjoy sports for losing my weight and getting rid of sickness.
In 2019, my friend asked: how about a triathlon? I hadn’t even ridden since I was a kid. But I’m not a person who says no, I began to learn to ride all over again, pedal and fall, ride on the road I was so scared of…
One thing I remember is that the morning of the race was one of the happiest ever. I remember smiling from the moment I woke up until I crossed the finish line. And my thought was: “I want to do this for the rest of my life.”
And exactly for that reason, I joined the Team Sumarpo. Because to be better, we must join the best. I’m currently using the Vanguard model and couldn’t be more satisfied.
My name is Francisco Cortes. I am a physical trainer specializing in high performance in the Mexican Triathlon Federation. Another of my specialties is functional training and mobility. I have a triathlon team called Team Athlos Mexico.
One of my goals for this year is to qualify for the UCI cycling world championships in Italy and take part in the Ironman Romagna Italia.
Sumarpo has been the best brand of wetsuit that I have used since it has incredible characteristics such as flexibility and buoyancy, it is very hydrodynamic and very easy to put on and take off, and one of the aspects I like is that it is 100% eco-friendly.
I have been very happy with all the products from this brand.
I am Mariana Devesa and I have been a rescue diver since 2010, a volunteer EMS since 2012, and a triathlete since 2017. I work for 5.11 Tactical as the LATAM Marketing Leader.
I have always liked to experience the feeling of adrenaline running through my entire body. And I couldn’t find a better way to feel it, than with triathlon. It is a sport that keeps you active, motivates you and challenges you.
In 2020 I got my first podium in La Paz Baja California, winning second place in sprint in my category and from that day, the illusion of going to a World Championship Triathlon was born.
Sumarpo came at the perfect time. Actually I don’t like to swim in cold water. Ever since I got my Vanguard wetsuit on, I swam in those same cold waters and felt the big difference and was 100% happy. I love my Vanguard wetsuit!
I am Daniela, as a triathlon lover, I just tried my new Sumarpo Vanguard wetsuit and absolutely loved its buoyancy and flexibility.
This year I’ll be racing the Triathlon Age Group World Championships at Montreal (sprint distance) and the Triathlon Age Group World Championships at Abu Dhabi (standard distance). After two years of competition cancellations, I can’t wait!
My name is Juan Nieves and I have been running since 05. As a husband and Director of Operations for Merck & Co. I am always looking for new experiences, and fascinating moments and pushing myself to new limits and boundaries.
Triathlon for me is a complete lifestyle that permeates my personal and professional life and vice versa, always with races, new friends, new places and strong emotions. Last year I raced in Cozumel (10:24) and now I plan to devote myself to middle distance races full time.
Sumapo came at the right time. I tried the Vanguard wetsuit. I was amazed at how natural the suit felt, how well it floated, and how absolutely not cold it was. I have now decided to try swimming in the springs in my home town, (from a glacier) I had cold experiences in my childhood, but now I can enjoy them!
I grew up racing Motocross and raced at a professional level by the time I was 18. After a series of injuries in my early 20s I ended up swimming as rehab, I was soon introduced to triathlon. Fast forward 6 years and in 2021 I finally achieved my goal of earning my pro license, and I will be racing the 2022 Xterra World Tour as a Professional. 
As an off-road athlete, I am devoted to the preservation of nature and our oceans, being a Sumarpo athlete gives me pride in knowing that they are the world's first 100% eco-friendly wetsuit. They have also proven that you do not have to sacrifice an ounce of performance to meet this amazing accolade.
For 2022 my goal is to earn a top 5 finish in the professional field and gain as much experience as possible. I am excited to see what I can accomplish this year with the help of my Sumarpo gear!
