Craig Alexander’s recent result at Ironman Racine 70.3 made many wonder what went wrong. A 1:31 half marathon was very uncharacteristic for him and after his recent win at Ironman Couer d’Alene in a very fast time Racine seemed out of character. But there was more to it. Trizone spoke to Crowie about the race and how the year is now progressing.
The Australian 2009/2010 was a big one for leading age grouper Caroline Sweeney. Just enough time to have recovered from the birth of her eldest daughter (2008) and fit in one last season before the birth of her second daughter. Her finale was a 6th overall at Huskisson long course and 1st age grouper.
Australian Joe Gambles has cemented himself as one of the world’s leading long distance triathletes. He specialises in Ironman 70.3 but last year also slipped in a course record when he won Ironman Wisconsin in his first attempt at the distance. The 2011 Port Macquarie Ironman 70.3 was the first time Joe has raced in Australia in a long time.
Making his 70.3 debut as a professional this weekend at Port Macquarie is Luke Gillmer. Luke has been meticulously planning this since coming back in to triathlons in 2006. After starting triathlons in Dubbo at the age of 14 and continuing until 18 Luke fell in love with the sport. At 18yrs university came around and no more triathlons happened until 2006 when he was challenged to do the Port Macquarie half ironman. This race took Luke just over 6 ½ hours.
Cameron Good has stepped up in the last three months and produced some outstanding results in some top races so far in 2011. He won the ITU Oceania Sprint distance championships in Devonport, was 5th in Geelong and placed 3rd in New Zealand not far behind Kris Gemmell. We talk to Cameron about how he got in to the sport and where he is going.
Josh Rix had his best year ever of racing in 2010. He had a second at the Steelhead 70.3 in Michigan and a very close second at the Shepparton half ironman. He also placed in the top ten in four other major 70.3 races in the USA against some very strong competition. With Challenge Wanaka coming up this weekend Josh talks to Trizone about what has motivated him to get back to the top.
This year Paul Ambrose proved to a lot of people that he can ‘go the distance’ when he won Ironman Louisville in emphatic fashion. He broke the bike course record and may have gone on to break the race record had he been aware that this was a possibility. Paul talks to Trizone about this year, Kona in 2011, the appeal of Olympic distance and life in general.
