It’s that time of the month again to announce our Triathlete of the Month. Who has produced the top performance in the month of May? Are there any front-runners emerging for our overall Triathlete of the Year award?
Winning this months award is one inspirational athlete. Cat Morrison put over a year of frustration and injury behind her to make a stunning comeback to the sport at ‘her’ race in Ironman 70.3 St Croix. Find out a bit more about the Cat Morrison comeback and who else came close, but no cigar, in this month’s awards.
Olympians Will Clarke and Tim Don Confirmed for Ironman 70.3 UK
With 2013 marking their transition into long distance racing with remarkable success, both Don and and Clarke have already proved they are a force to be reckoned with, fending off veteran Ironman athletes to finish in podium positions; Don recently came 3rd in Ironman 70.3 South Africa, whilst Clarke took 2nd place at Ironman 70.3 St. Croix.
This week saw some great returns to the sport after injury
For me, the top news coming out of the world of triathlon has been that of the amazing performance from Cat Morrison in Ironman 70.3 St Croix but also in returning action has been Julie Dibens, Nico Munoz Ward and Paul Hawkins.
Check out this quick update on the comeback Kings and Queens this week!
Clarke takes 2nd on the podium
It was a fairytale return to the sport for Cat Morrison, as she returned from a series of injuries to take the win today at Ironman 70.3 St Croix. The world of triathlon watched on as one of its most popular and promising stars returned to the course she might consider ‘hers’ as the flying Scot added the 2013 title to the ones she won here in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
In the men’s race, Will Clarke posted his best non-drafting result to date with a 2nd place on the podium at the Caribbean race.

Top Scot on the comeback trail
Cat Morrison is a world-class athlete, holding the Scottish iron-distance record (8:48:11) and having taken the titles at Ironman Texas, Alpe d’Huez and Ironman 70.3 St Croix in 2011. She finished that year by taking a credible 11th at Kona against a very strong field.
Unfortunately, those results masked a serious achilles injury that would require surgical treatment and extended rehab that would result in zero racing last year. Rather than dwell on this, Morrison used the time to work with Winning Scotland Foundation. Now she is on the comeback trail for 2013 and has been spending some time at the wonderful Trisports Lanzarote facility. I caught up with her to find out how her body was coping with training stresses and much more.
Last night was one of the most glittering on the British Triathlon scene as the annual award ceremonies were held, recognising ‘Ourt Greatest Team Ever’. Whilst the plaudits were quite rightfully aimed at many of the athletes, coaches and logistical teams behind the successful Olympic cycle, our best of long-distance were still well rewarded, including Celtman picking up Best Event.
Here’s a round up of the awards:
Professional triathletes lay down their Kona predictions!
Everyone and anyone has an opinion on who will win the 2012 edition of Ironman World Championships, but there are a group of people who might have a better idea than most. They race against them, train with them and some have even been up against them on the Lava Fields. Yes, that’s right – professional triathletes!
Here’s some predictions for Kona from some of the best British and Irish pro’s not in Hawaii this year. No sitting on the fence for this bunch – find out who they think will walk out with the title.
On her day, one of the most talented women on the long course cicruit, Cat Morrison is having an annus horribilis in 2012. A succession of injuries and a bereavement have knocked her season completely – meaning she has been watching much of the action from the sidelines.
To compound this, she has had an accident on the bike that has resulted in a broken collar bone – all combining to rule her out for the rest of the year.
I caught up with Cat to find out what had happened and when we might get to see one of the most talented long distance ladies back in action.
