A casual catch up with Caroline ‘Xena’ Steffen Stef Hanson. Chief. March 22, 2013 Professional Triathletes 5 With just two more sleeps before she defends her Urban Hotel IRONMAN Asia/Pacific, Melbourne title, Caroline ‘Xena’ Steffen takes a few minutes to have a casual chat with us at the Oakley Australia headquarters – away from all the hustle and bustle. Her performance last year was not only her first sub-nine hour race, but it also landed her the title of the second fastest woman ever in the history of Ironman racing. We chat about how she is ‘feeling’, whether the pressure of defending champion status can weight heavily on someone’s shoulders, race day last year compared to this year, her first ‘couples win’ and so much more. Check it out. 5 Responses Kacey March 22, 2013 I love this chick!!!!!! Reply Kacey March 22, 2013 Love the bet:) great incentive stef Reply Garonzatron March 22, 2013 THIS. WOMAN. RULES!!!!!
