Commerzbank would like to thank the Triathlon Team for a successful partnership

Commerzbank would like to thank the Commerzbank Triathlon Team for the successful partnership of the past years. Commerzbank continued the commitment to triathlon in 2009 as part of its takeover of Dresdner Bank. The contract runs until December 31, 2011 and all agreements remain valid until the end of the year. "The partnership has been and is a success for both parties. On behalf of Commerzbank, I would therefore like to thank the athletes and the management team for their excellent cooperation over the last few years. In the future, Commerzbank will focus its commitment to sports even more strongly on football," said Karsten Petry, Head of Corporate Sponsoring at Commerzbank.

The Commerzbank Triathlon Team consists of seven top international triathletes with a total of more than 120 top ten placings, including more than 40 victories. Team manager Jan Wendt from MMH: "With our partner and main sponsor, Commerzbank, we have entered the history books as the first professional triathlon team, a concept that has now been copied by others. We are very proud of this and would like to thank Commerzbank and everybody else involved. We are very pleased to report that the team has had a very successful start to this season and we are very ambitious in the competitions planned right through until the end of the season."
