MX3 Diagnostics was the official hydration diagnostics partner for the 2019-2020 IRONMAN Oceania Series. IRONMAN Oceania operates several elite endurance races, including the iconic IRONMAN triathlon series, throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Training for and competing in IRONMAN races requires both physical and mental stamina—and hydration is a key element to both. Dehydration can lead to fatigue, injury and sickness. By using the MX3 PRO, athletes could test before, during and after races to track and adjust their personalized hydration status.
Hydration Knowledge Improves Athletes’ Health & Performance
Ollie Allan, director and head coach of Team Tri-Alliance, called the MX3 PRO a “game changer.” He added:
“Everyone knows the vital role hydration plays within our sport; it can literally make or break you. With a large number of athletes within the Tri-Alliance team aiming for more challenging goals like IRONMAN and 70.3 events, we are always striving to prepare them with greater and more accurate information.
Now that we're partnering with MX3 Diagnostics, we have removed the guess work when it comes to athlete hydration and education. MX3’s simple testing allows our coaches to regularly monitor and provide immediate feedback to our athletes, promoting optimized hydration, encouraging better recovery and providing improved preparation for their big day.”
MX3 Valuable for Athlete Training and Recovery
Dave Beeche, the managing director of the Oceania IRONMAN Group, said competing in IRONMAN at all levels is about maximizing performance to help make the impossible a reality. He continued:
“The IRONMAN Oceania operations team is very proud to have been working with MX3 throughout the year to provide hydration assessments of IRONMAN athletes in recovery tents post competition,” Beeche said. “The innovative technology of MX3’s Hydration Testing System is quickly becoming a valuable tool for IRONMAN coaches and athletes to help them optimize hydration management during training and recovery sessions in preparation for race day.”
