On March 24th, British PRO Corinne Abraham crushed the opposition to take the biggest triathlon title of her career.
A super-fast 8:10:56 was enough to beat the opposition by over 16 minutes, be crowned the Ironman Asia-Pacific Champion in Melbourne and walk away with a huge P-4000 boost to the KPR kitty with Kona 2013 in mind.
With the result, Corinne announced herself to the world as a real threat on the international stage and a new star of British iron-distance racing. I caught up with her after the win to find out what this result meant to her.
Abraham completes a stunning month with Triathlete of the Month
Running late but reading great, it’s time to announce our Triathlete of the Month. Who will be the early front runner for the prestigious Triathlete of the Year award?
Could it really be anyone else other than Corinne Abraham? She produced an early candidate for ‘race of the year’ by eviscerating the field at Ironman Melbourne to pick up the Asia-Pacific Championship and P-4000. Check out the story behind Corinne Abraham’s award and find out who came close but no cigar this month.
Abraham crushes the opposition in Melbourne
What a fantastic weekend of triathlon racing and results over the weekend. Corinne Abraham would surprise the world of triathlon by taking the biggest title of her career over in Ironman Melbourne and subsequently mark herself as one of the top women in the world.
In Guam, that double act of Jacqui Slack and Ben Allen would once again take the titles on offer at XTERRA Guam and over in Lanzarote, Eimear Mullan and Ritchie Nichols were winning again and this time were joined on the podium by Stephen Bayliss and Bella Bayliss.
It’s your weekend round-up!
British pro Corinne Abraham has stunned the world of triathlon by taking the Ironman Melbourne title and with it the Asia-Pacific Championship, P-4000 and a big prize pot. Abraham was perhaps unfancied by the worlds media ahead of the race but she has certainly shown what she is capable and introduced herself at the top table of triathletes in the world. She was joined on the podium by Yvonne Van Vlerken and Caroline Steffen.
In the men’s race Eneko Llanos carried on his fine form by winning the title and was joined on the podium by Marino Vanhoenacker and Craig Alexander.
Check out the results here.
One of the biggest race weekends of the year is upon us as the Ironman machine rolls in to Melbourne for the Ironman Asia-Pacific Championships. With it comes a huge P-4000 that would be a massive boost for anyone who has Kona aspirations – don’t forget a 13th in Melbourne is worth more than winning Ironman UK and Ironman Wales…
Competing against the best in the world and the usual fierce conditions are Craig Twigg, Tom Lowe and Corinne Abraham – with all three capable of making a big dent on the final results and have Kona aspirations for 2013. They will have it tough against the likes of Craig Alexander, Marino Vanhoenaker, Meredith Kessler and Caroline Steffen, to name just a few!
Elsewhere the XTERRA series rolls into Guam and there is a packed domestic calendar (if we can avoid the snow). Check out the weekend preview.
The calendar year kicked off this weekend with Chile hosting the latest round of Ironman action. Ironman 70.3 Pucon, in the foot of a dormant volcano, would host a race that had limited British action but nonetheless would serve to wet the appetite for next weeks Ironman 70.3 South Africa. A 70.3 mile entree if you will.
Elsewhere Nico Munoz Ward was freezing his way to a 5th place in a unique distance duathlon, whilst most others would be putting in some serious training ready for the early year races. Here’s your first weekend round-up of 2013!
New movers and shakers in 2013…
Yesterday Will Clarke and Liz Blatchford joined Nick Baldwin and Nat Barnard on my list of ones to watch out for in 2013. They will have big performances I’m sure.
Today they are joined by Joel Jameson and Corinne Abraham. Check out why they are my number 3 picks here.
Being a pro triathlete is really hard. The training and racing is extremely hard (come on, pro’s are human too and 30 hours a week is tiring for anyone) and that comes at a cost. A financial cost.
Triathlete’s have to be their own Business Managers as well, looking for commercial partnerships to help fund the cost of a pro lifestyle were prize money can be unreliable and barely cover the costs of just racing. They also have to be marketers and sales people, providing brand exposure and becoming ambassadors for the products they are selling.
