Sailfish and the Raelert-brothers

Andy and Michi, the world’s most successful triathlon family duo, have announced that they are teaming up with sailfish, maker of world-class triathlon wetsuits, over the coming four years.

“We are extremely enthusiastic about this long-term partnership with sailfish, whose wetsuits are easily the best we have tried,” says Andreas Raelert. “We’ve had numerous offers from competing brands. But after extensive testing we had to go with sailfish! We are convinced that sailfish is a step ahead of the competition when it comes to developing triathlon wetsuits. The founder of the company, Jan Sibbersen, was formerly the fastest triathlon swimmer in the world. We are going to be working with him on sailfish product development – we can’t wait to get started,” adds Michael Raelert. This enthusiasm about the new partnership is also shared by Jan Sibbersen, founder and Managing Director of sailfish: “Having the Raelert brothers on the sailfish team is absolutely fantastic. In addition to their extraordinary athletic abilities, they are just two sympathetic, smart and authentic people. These are precisely the values reflected by the sailfish brand. 2013 is going to be an exciting year, because we are already working with the brothers to develop a new high-end wetsuit that’s going to leave a lot of what you have seen before in the dust!”
