Can Daniela Ryf Take Record Fifth Title at 70.3 World Champs

Friday 06 September 2019

Since the first IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship was held in 2006 the women’s race has seen 10 different champions from five different countries. Swiss Daniela Ryf has won an event-best four times and could become the first athlete, male or female, to win the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship a fifth time. Together with Mirinda Carfrae (AUS) and Leanda Cave (GBR), Ryf also holds the distinction of having won the IRONMAN World Championship as well the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
 
Trying to dethrone Ryf will be a stellar group of female triathletes: Great Britain’s Holly Lawrence, who was crowned IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion in 2016 in Queensland (Australia), and Lucy Charles-Barclay, who comes off wins at the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship and IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire, are considered strong contenders for the top podium. Also, Germany’s Anne Haug, who placed third at last year’s IRONMAN World Championship and IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, has recovered from injury and is eager to build on her reputation as a fierce competitor. Additional global competition will come from Ellie Salthouse (AUS), Emma Pallant (GBR) and Radka Kahlefeldt (CZE), each of whom continue to impress on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit. With the strong lineup, only one athlete in the field, however, can claim she knows what it takes to win in Nice: Manon Genet of France will be representing the host nation after her commanding victory at last year’s inaugural IRONMAN 70.3 Nice triathlon which was held on this year’s championship course.

Summer 2019, part I: Festival of 5k’s and a pesky plantar fascia

Tuesday 27 Aug 2019 Jocelyn Wong Neill
Hello, August! Apparently I have been aggressively ignoring my 19 for ‘19 list, as I missed a blog update for June and July (and let’s face it, my May post was really about my April marathon...). Maybe I’ll double up (or double down?) the next few months to play catch-up! ;) It’s been a funky summer. I went on a 5k spree in May for funsies, using my hard-earned winter marathon fitness and some

Challenge Roth - Germany

Monday 07 May 2018 Noreply@blogger.com (Luke Bell)
Here is just a quick re cap for those of you that were interested in how my race went at Challenge Taiwan full distance. Swim - It was a non wetsuit swim for us as water temps were 24-25C (age group could still wear suits, mainly for safety reasons in Asia) I treated it like a 70.3 swim to hang onto Dylan McNiece who is on exceptional swimmers in our sport (Has led the Hawaii IM out of water) - time 48min.

 Bike - smooth roads and a rolling hilly course along the coast, actually a very nice bike course Dylan and I wanted to keep pace high as #1 we raced last weekend or 6 days ago actually (Challenge Melb half...not ideal but part of a "package" with Challenge) and knew fatigue would set in later no matter what #2 we wanted to hold off the "king of asian racing" Freddie Cronenberg. It rained a little during bike so although there was cloud cover the humidity was quite high, still air temps around 30C... not good coming from Melbourne.
Bike times:
Through 90km - 2.08
180k - 4.20 (wind picked up on second lap)

 Run - Dylan and I ran together for 20km at a steady clip (on track for a 2.55-57 marathon) that we thought was comfortable and manageable in the 'warm, humid' Taiwan conditions.... not record setting but it didn't need to be. However, and I think mainly just due to fatigue (2 races 6 days + travel) I cramped up in left adductors..This has happened a few times before. From there it was trying to manage cramps home so made for a little longer back end of marathon and quite a few stops to stretch it out... humidity didn't help either with incased sweat rates. Anyway Freddie caught me at 32km and I slipped to 3rd where I stayed. Time - blew out to 3.12 (not ideal but best of a bad scenario)

 Lesson from race!
- Back to back races in hard/painful!! or a Half and a Full in 6 days in 2 different countries.
 - The swim is in a man made lake or more like a 1.3km long swimming pool.... water is filled by a fresh spring so clean, see the bottom all the way as 2.5m deep. Amazing.
 - Course was fantastic swim bike and run were all quite nice interesting and never boring.
 - People here are crazy and lover the sport. Over the weekend there are 4k+ athletes racing as there is a Full, Half (Saturday) Olympic and Kids race (300 kids) Sunday,
 - I did see some people riding in Crocs with pedals on $10k bikes
 - I did see some people running in rubber thongs with socks.
- The aid station that I thought had coke on it ended up being Ice Tea!
 - I may now have eaten my weight in Dumplings.....

 Thanks for all the well wishes, It was a blast. Luke
