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.
It was a double British win tonight as both Paul Amey and Rachel Joyce came away with the Ironman Texas titles in dominating fashion.
Joyce showed her fantastic form by dipping under the iconic sub-9 barrier by taking the tape in 8:49:19 and finishing 8th overall. Paul Amey won the race on the run but was chased hard all the way by James Cunnama, and took the tape in 8:25:06.
Full report to come soon.
A tough day for the Brits racing
In its first outing as a 70.3 race, Brent McMahon and Meredith Kessler would battle in Utah to take the Ironman 70.3 North-American Championships and with it a share of the $75,000 and the large 1,500 KPR on offer.
The title and prize money had attracted an extremely strong field, that also included British names in the PRO race such as the reigning Ironman World Champion Leanda Cave, Emma-Kate Lidbury, Lesley Paterson, Joel Jameson and Paul Amey. As things developed, the Brits would find it hard to make an impact against the motivated field of North Americans competing for the title.
Timo Bracht and Erika Csomor were the athletes who came away victorious at the first edition of Ironman Los Cabos. A quality field had assembled in Mexico, drawn by the warm weather, lovely looking course and the not-small consideration of P-2000 and $75,000 to contend.
Also in action was Paul Amey who was using this race as a ‘warm-up’ for Ironman Texas, whilst Yvette Grice would be putting herself through a stern test in the heat after a cold British Winter of training. Find out how they got on and how the race unfolded.
A big weekend of iron-distance racing beckons with the debut of a new P-2000 race in the form of Ironman Los Cabos. We also have a an all-star field competing at Ironman 70.3 San Juan this weekend – all this action ahead of next weekends marquee Ironman race in Melbourne!
Los Cabos has put together a strong field via its P-2000 status and $75,000 prize pot with Yvette Grice and Paul Amey in the mix. Meanwhile over in San Juan one of my ‘dream battles’ becomes a reality with world champion Leanda Cave in action alongside Jodie Swallow and several other huge names.

It was a huge weekend of racing, with Abu Dhabi Triathlon headlining and a strong support act in the form of Ironman New Zealand and Escape from Alcatraz.
There were also notable races and results from the Spring Ballbuster, Tingufaya 6.5km, PowerBar 10k, Bath Half Marathon and Eastbourne Half Marathon. Check out the weekend action here!
Van Lierde and Hauschildt secure the win
As I write this, the results from the 2013 edition of the Abu Dhabi Triathlon are still trickling in, but what is clear is that pre-race favourite Frederik Van Lierde has produced a stunning win under the desert sun to take the big one out in Abu Dhabi. News just in is that Melissa Hauschildt has held off the threat from Caroline Steffen to take the win in the ladies race.
Check out the results here and find out how the British PROs fared out on the course.
Corinne Abraham showed the world what might have been had she raced Kona, by swim/bike and running herself onto the podium at this weekends blue riband event, Ironman Arizona.
Overall plaudits went to a new German racer on the scene Nils Frommhold (8:03:13) and Linsey Corbin (9:01:41) but Abraham proved best of British in a talented starting line-up by coming third. Here’s a race report looking at the British performances out there.
