Going long this weekend Stef Hanson. Chief. July 19, 2012 Race Previews UPDATED: This weekend sees another two Ironman races and a 70.3. We again are going from start lists found on the websites. Last year there were only four starters and Yvette Grice won convincingly in a time of 9:37, and this year there are only four again. At Ironman Lake Placid, Australian, Ali Fitch who has a lot of experience under her belt could be standing on the podium at the end of the day, but a number of athletes are returning to Lake Placid this year and will be fighting hard against her. They include, Jacqui Gordon, Suzanne Zelazo, Amber Ferreira, Marie Danais and Suzanne Serpico. Another to watch out for is Sarah Piampiano, who came seventh at Ironman Texas earlier this year. At Ironman 70.3 Antwerp, our money is on the speedy Nicola Spirig who won at Ironman 70.3 Switzerland. Among the seventeen professionals racing is our very own, Elly Franks, who we wish all the best!
