Go! Go! Hometown: Novara, ItalyHow did you decided to start competing in triathlon?“I started by chance in 2002, when I was 14.I used to practice competitive swimming and during pre-swimming preparation, I also really enjoyed riding and cycling. Thus, I started doing some youth triathlon races and immediately I loved this new sport. At the beginning I did competitive swimming and occasionally some running and cycling training. Then when I finished high school, it all become more seriously. What started as a passion, I managed to make triathlon my career. I finished the youth categories and in 2014 I took the step towards medium distances (half-ironman) conquering 3 Italian titles and 2 European titles. In October 2016 I made my debut in an Ironman, in Arizona, with the aim of qualifying for Kona 2017. In October 2017, I had the opportunity to compete in my first KONA World Championship. Now I have my ticket for my 2nd KONA in hand and the rest will be history in 4 weeks.”Discover Vision triathlon products provided for Giulio:http://www.visiontechusa.com/en/vision-teams/giulio-molinari Related News 16 Mar 2021 WELCOME (BACK) Simone!
