MX3 Diagnostics has been named 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. MX3 Hydration Testing uses saliva, a convenient and non-invasive source, to test anywhere and anytime for hydration status, empowering athletes to know at all times their personalized hydration data.
Ollie Allan, director and head coach of Team Tri-Alliance, is excited about how the MX3 system is improving athletes’ health and performance:“The MX3 Hydration Testing system has been a game changer! 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.”
