Austrian Ironman – Our Ironwomen!

Congrats to Joyce Wolfe and Katie Cooke who both completed the Austrian Ironman with two amazing performances! Joyce was 7th woman home and was 23rd overall in a national record of 9.15.42. After completing the 2.4 mile swim and the 112 mile cycle Joyce ran the marathon in 3.07.04! Incredible stuff. Katie who recently won the Schull triathlon (a trifling little warm up event! :-) ) did a fantastic time of 10.07.17 which was faster than the 29th placed pro! Katie’s marathon time was a brilliant 3.41.16. Both deserve our heartiest congratulations for not just finishing but for competing so brilliantly. I hope they are enjoying a well deserved rest.
