Ironman corporation today announced the 2017 All World Athlete Champions for 2017 and South Australian Nancy Cullen has claimed 1st place in the Female 60-64 Age Group.
“The IRONMAN All World Athlete program is our way of rewarding age-group athletes' hard work, dedication, and performance across IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 racing. Starting in 2015 and continuing in 2017 as long as one IRONMAN or IRONMAN 70.3, is complete you can also receive points for, IRONMAN 5i50, Life Time Tri International and Sprint distance events (included in the overall category).
The program uses IRONMAN’s Age Group Rankings system to determine which athletes have finished within the top 10 percent or better of their age group each calendar year. Within this system, athletes generate points based on their finish time behind the first official finisher in their age group. Athletes accumulate points at every race they complete, but on December 31st, only their top three performances will count toward their All World Athlete status. This makes it easy for athletes to improve their ranking simply by racing more with IRONMAN.”*
Nancy took the crown with wins in IM New Zealand, Cairns 70.3 and the big one, the Hawaii Ironman World Championships. Congratulations Nancy!
