Tyler earns new sponsor

Tyler Butterfield

Bermuda triathlete Tyler Butterfield yesterday announced his new partnership with his latest sponsor K-Swiss an American footwear company.After sustaining a debilitating injury leading into the Hawaii World Championships in October, Butterfield switched to the K-Swiss ‘Blade’ and which he said improved his condition.“I’ve always wanted to be a part of the K-Swiss Team, they really have professionalised the sport and after four years in cycling. I appreciate sponsors that look after their athletes.“To then use one of their shoes to overcome an injury, the decision was made in my mind. I just had to convince them they wanted me too. Some of the best triathletes in the world are signed with them, I am proud to become a part of such a group.”Butterfield finished the Hawaii World Championships in 28th position in a time of eight hours, 46 minutes and 16 seconds. The ex-professional cyclist won a bronze medal for Bermuda at the CAC Games in Puerto Rico in July. He also finished fifth at the Ironman Mooseman in New Hampshire, fifth at the Memorial Hermann Ironman on Galveston Island, Texas and third in the St. Croix Ironman.
