Fredrik Croneborg is a familiar face on the Asian triathlon scene, having been based in Shanghai in the past while working as an e-learning project manager, and currently living in Phuket. While he represented Sweden as a junior, it was only in 2010 that he went pro, winning his first Ironman 70.3 title in China and becoming a podium fixture in the region.
While Freddie has been placing in ironman-distance events since 2012, his maiden ironman win at the 2014 Challenge Atlantic City took the inaugural race by surprise and garnered him the Royal Package to race Challenge Bahrain, the world’s richest triathlon.
