Ironman Australia Port Macquarie 2012

Ironman Australia

 

What a perfect day for racing at this years Ironman! I was happy to be in Port to support and cheer on the racers Zac, Simon, Len, Jeremy & Paul with other supporters from NSTC (Northern Suburbs Tri Club). For the bike leg we based ourselves on Matthew Flinders Drive a rather short but hard climb as the athletes come back in to town at the end of each lap. I did what  I could to help everyone up the hill and hence I still have very little voice 3 days after the event, every time we get a competitor to smile there was a noticeable lift in their energy. After the bike we positioned ourselves in the heart of town where the laps crossed paths, again it was great to cheer and encourage every participant.

It was great to see all of the NSTC racers get across the line, in particular to Jeremy who I coached for the event and achieved all the target times to achieve his time goal and finish his first Ironman. I will say he flew through his last k, finishing very strongly. Simon a regular at swimming over the last 6 months also completed his first Ironman with a sub 11hr performance. Well done to everyone who competed.
