About

Ange has always been extremely active choosing to run to rugby training rather than taking his car and hopefully being able to slip in some swimming at Te Rapa Waterworld before training also if time permitted.  Ange also starting riding in the Hamilton to Whangamata bike rides.  Ange raced his first marathon in Auckland in the mid 1990s.  So the three disciplines came together in the form of Ironman/Triathlon.  Ange has gone on to complete 14 Ironman races including qualifying for and racing in the World Championships in Kona, Hawaii in 2004 and in Port Macquarie, Australia in 2006.  In January 2011, when racing the Port of Tauranga Half Ironman, Ange qualified for the New Zealand team to race in the ITU Age Group World Championships. This race took place on the 6th of November 2011 at Lake Las Vegas, USA and Ange and Debbie travelled with their children making this race day a family affair. Despite snow falling the morning of the race and cancelling the swim it was a successful day for the New Zealand team.  


Ange worked with the Waikato Rugby Union 7s team for their 2016/17 summer campaign as their fitness trainer.  Despite great success with no defeats in the build up to the National Championship in Rotorua in January 2017, the team lost to Counties Manukau in the final.  Ange valued his time with the team and is looking forward to a continued involvement with Rugby 7s in the future.  He also continues to mentor young athletes in their given sports. 
 
In May 2001 Debbie and Ange celebrated the arrival of their daughter Petra followed by their son Drew in November 2004. Petra attended Te Kowhai School before starting school at Waikato Diocesan School for Girls. Drew also attended Te Kowhai School and now attends Rototuna Junior High School. Both children are extremely active. Petra attends several dance classes a week and also plays netball in the winter season.  She is actively involved in Performing Arts at school together with a Competition Dance Squad. Drew plays touch rugby and basketball for his school.  He plays rugby for Fraser Tech Junior Rugby Club.  In 2016 he made the Western Greens Rep rugby squad.  Drew is also a keen surfer and enjoys getting out on the water as much as he can joined by Ange who has also taken up surfing!
 
Since the early days in 1997 the business has certainly changed.  Ironman Concrete Cutting has moved to premises in Te Rapa, we now have five full time employees on the road and a part time office assistant.  Deb and Ange continue to be totally committed to providing the best possible service and love ensuring their clients have a stress and hassle free experience.
