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.
In a strong field, Lucy Gossage shone as she claimed third at Ironman 70.3 Mallorca, in a race that was won overall by Lisa Huttlaler and world-force Eneko Llanos.
Tamsin Lewis was also impressive and came 4th in a field that included the likes of Yvonne Van Vlerken, Eva Nystrom and Anja Beranek, There were plenty of British interest in the PRO race here, both in the ladies and men’s race, plus more than a few impressive age group performances.

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.

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.
