Michellie Jones 3rd at Eagleman Ironman 70.3 Triathlon 2010

Michellie Jones finshed a solid third in a race won by two Kiwis. Samantha Warriner (1st and 8mins ahead of Michellie) has been putting in some solid result this year in the USA. It was great to see Michellie podium against some strong opposition.

Richie Cunningham finished 12th overall with a good swim and bike leg but an average run. Richie recently finished 4th at the Florida Rohto 70.3 with a run time of 1:21:09, around 16mins faster.

Trizone asked Richie what happened last weekend ‘Unfortunately it wasn’t only Eagleman when my run has been way below average. Basically since St. Croix 70.3 (4th) I haven’t been able to put together a good run. I’ve only ever run outside 1:20 once in my life before the last few races. I’m not sure what’s going on. I’m going to the doctor today to figure out what’s wrong. I haven’t been right since I did Arizona IM (Richie finished 4th) + Phuket Triathlon (7th after winning the previous year) at the end of last year. I’m taking a little break now. I may do Rhode Island 70.3 or Boulder 70.3 for my next races. I’d like to get healthy before Clearwater (Nov 2010)’.

Hopefully Cunningham can get back to his running best soon.

 

Kiwi’s dominated in Cambridge, Maryland as New Zealand’s former Foster Grant Ironman 70.3 world champion, Terenzo Bozzone, and countrywoman Samantha Warriner took the overall titles.

Bozzone ran his way to the front of the race, posting the fastest run split of the day to take the men’s title over James Cotter and Andrew Yoder.

Warriner led from the gun, putting together the fastest splits in all three disciplines to take the women’s race, finishing ahead of former Ironman 70.3 world champion Samantha McGlone and former Ford Ironman world champion Michellie Jones. Six-time Kona champ, Natascha Badmann, finished sixth overall.
