Dina Altayeb

Dina is an inspirational triathlete. She resides in Saudi Arabia and the combination of environmental and cultural barriers poses a challenge. She overcomes this by spending most of her time training indoors on a treadmill or computrainer. Dina travels frequently to train and compete outdoors in other locations.  

Dina started competing in triathlons ten years ago and has her sights set on making it to the Hawaii Ironman World Championships.  She has finished many triathalons including Ironman Canada, Ironman Lake Placid and most recently the Long Course triathlon in Abu Dhabi.  In this most recent triathlon she finished 5th in her age group.  Her commitment and motivation reminds us not to take the moderate climate we live and train in for granted. Dina has been a 7SYSTEMS user since the very beginning and we wish her luck on her journey to Hawaii.


Joe Rizzi

rizzis-in-hawaiiJoe Rizzi does more! He is the proud father of two active girls aged 5 and 6. He owns and operates a plumbing business that employs 10 people and works long days often doing hard physical work.

Joe busted his butt all year in the hopes of making it to the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii.

Joe wakes up at 4am to fit in all his training before a hectic day of work and time with the family. He is proud of the fact that he rarely, if ever, misses one of his girls swim, dance or soccer practices or events.

In 2009 he reached his goal and qualified for Hawaii at Ironman Lake Placid. Joe finished the gruelling course in 9 hours 51 minutes and 40 seconds which landed him 31st overall and 4th in his age group!

He went on to finish Ironman Hawaii in an inspiring time of 10:10:26.

Joe manages to DO MORE with the help of 7SYSTEMS.
