Aussies top podiums in big weekend of racing


Aussies top podiums in big weekend of racing

It’s been a big weekend for Australian triathletes with 11 Aussies securing podium finishes across four different races.

Max Neumann kicked off the weekend of results for the Australians, taking home the win at IRONMAN 70.3 Western Sydney on Sunday. Coming off the back of a fourth place finish at the Noosa Triathlon earlier this month, Neumann put together a quality race to secure line honours with Alexander Polizzi and Levi Maxwell rounding out the podium.

Kiwi Hannah Wells overcame her challengers to claim the win in the Pro Women’s field. Posting excellent swims, eventual runner-up Grace Thek and third placed Rebecca Clarke forced Wells to make chase early on in the race. However, they unfortunately could not stave off the eventual winner, with Wells putting together a solid performance to take line honours.

Keeping within the IRONMAN theme, Carrie Lester secured the win at IRONMAN Cozumel in a zippy 08:38:41. While Sarah Crowley validated her Kona 2020 Automatic Qualifier with a win at IRONMAN Arizona. The win will see Crowley head back to Kona in 2020 as she attempts to one up her 2019 Kona World Championship bronze medal.

Over in Malaysia, the Australians dominated the podium at Challenge Iskandar Puteni, with Kerry Morris, Felicity Sheedy-Ryan and Kate Bevilaqua cleaning up in the Pro Women’s field with first, second and third, respectively. Steve McKenna took home top honours in the Pro Men’s field, with Italian Domencio Passuello and Czech’s Jakub Langhammer rounding out the podium.
