Team Emgus:

Aside from competing together in triathlons for many years to come, both Emily and Angus have big plans for team Emgus including their plan to coach other budding athletes how to train and compete at the highest level. Emily and Angus have years of coaching experience and wish to help encourage others to follow their path to success, if not just to encourage others to give triathlons a go.

Wearing Sunwise:

Emily and Angus have each decided to wear a pair of our Chromafusion 2.0 range that are perfect for Triathlons. Angus has chosen to wear our innovative Hastings Wind model, these sunglasses feature a panoramic one piece lens that offers the latest in eyewear innovation and technology. The lens will react to the amount of sunlight to give him the optimal coverage needed. Its lightweight and slim line frame will mean Angus will barely feel it on his head whilst competing.

Emily has gone for a pair of our Wellington Pink sunglasses, she has decided to customise this pair by mixing our blue platinum Chromafusion 2.0 lenses with the frame. Our Wellington model is half framed and has a thicker arm than the Hastings. This model is the perfect balance between robust and lightweight and suits running and cycling perfectly.
