The Ironman World Championships 70.3 will be held next month at Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada USA on 9th September 2012.
Ian Hepenstall recently reported on the lead up to the World Championship 70.3 that they come from “a land downunder” – stacks of them – and the heat is really on for next weekend’s Marine Corps Ironman World Championship 70.3.Triathletes from Australia and New Zealand make up a quarter of the men’s field, with four in the elite women’s race. When interviewed the elite athletes all agreed on one point: the cauldron approaching 40 degrees Celsius, coupled with the hills in Henderson, will provide the sternest of tests.
As the countdown begins we wish our club athletes Kay, Kerri, Kate, Adrian, Al and Barry all the very best for their trip. Their preparation and training experiences have been mixed, however on the day we trust that you all perform to the very best of your ability and enjoy the experience and look forward to hearing all the stories on your return.
