Just watching the Ironmen in action makes us want to lie down. But what amazing athletes!
First up, congratulations to Shannon Eckstein, the defending champion of the Kellogg’s Nutrigrain Ironman title, on winning not only back to back titles, but also a record breaking fifth title. He now matches arch rival Zane Holmes, who is still recovering from a back injury.
Then there is WA’s Alicia Marriott who is fast becoming his female equivalent in the sport. She added the Kellogg’s Nutrigrain Ironwoman title to the Australian Ironwoman title she won in 2008 and her two Coolangatta Gold titles. Although she did not win the North Cronulla event she did enough to take the title on points.
