After a successful season culminating in his first victory at the World Triathlon Long Distance Championship, Clement Mignon is setting his sights on achieving even greater success in 2024. The 25-year-old French athlete has teamed up with the BMC Pro Team and has also been selected as one of the contracted athletes for the T100 Triathlon World Tour.
Setting Goals for the Year Ahead
In an interview with TRI247, Mignon discussed his aspirations for the upcoming year and emphasized the importance of consistency as he strives to narrow the gap between himself and the top triathletes in the world.
Following a disappointing end to his 2023 season at the IRONMAN Portugal event, Mignon recognized the need for a break from training to recharge both mentally and physically. He resumed training in November after taking three weeks off to rest and recuperate.
New Training Environment
Mignon’s time off not only allowed him to rejuvenate but also enabled him to plan for a successful season ahead. Joining the BMC Team has provided him with a professional training environment that he believes will contribute to his growth as an athlete.
With the guidance and support of individuals like Bob and Ben De Wolf, Mignon is confident that he has the resources needed to enhance his performance. A recent training camp in Lanzarote allowed him to bond with his teammates and fully experience the team’s commitment to maximizing athletes’ potential.
Focus on Kona Qualification
Looking ahead to 2024, Mignon expressed his desire to secure a spot at the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. Qualifying for this prestigious event is his primary goal for the year, aiming to redeem his ninth-place finish in 2022 after receiving a penalty.
His immediate objectives include qualifying for Kona and participating in the initial events of the T100 Tour. As the season progresses, Mignon plans to shift his focus towards preparing for the IRONMAN World Championship and giving his all to achieve his ultimate goal.
