NELSON Mandela Bay Municipality Executive Mayor, Athol Trollip, on Monday announced a festival that would precede the 2018 Isuzu Ironman 70.3 World Championships, which is set to be held for the first time in Africa on September 1 and 2 this year.

The Molo Festival of Triathlon is a combination of five events taking place prior to the 2018 Isuzu Ironman 70.3 World Championship.

In the build-up towards the Isuzu Ironman 70.3 World Championship, the festival is a strategic intervention at repositioning Nelson Mandela Bay as an iconic sports tourism destination by capitalising on the city’s hosting of the event.

“The word ‘MOLO’ is going to become synonymous with Ironman on this continent.

“And this continent is going to produce more Ironmen and women champions. We’re making the name uniquely ours,” Trollip said.

The Molo Festival of Triathlon hosted by the Metro has been designed to get everyone involved.
