Miguel Netto

I am a long distance triathlete and endurance sportsman, focusing mainly in half IronMan and full IronMan distances. The main goal for the near future is to qualify for the IronMan World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. Currently coached by Claire Horner (MyTrainingDay). I have completed 9 full Ironman events and 6 half IronMan events and took part in Ironman 70.3 World Championships, held in Port Elizabeth in September 2018.

I am also a full time triathlon and running coach for MyTrainingDay for the mid to elite level athletes.

I have always been passionate about sports, particularly endurance sport. I hold a degree in Sports Science from Stellenbosch University.

In December 2018, I finished 10th in my age group at the Ironman South American Championship in Argentina in a time of 9:00:46, missing my World Championship spot by 21 seconds. This ensuring I continue to pursue my dream of qualifying for Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. The next event was IronMan South Africa on 7 April 2019.
