The results from last weekend’s long course races tell a few stories. Erika Csomor was finally back on top of the podium in an Ironman – the first time since Ironman Arizona 2008. She had to fight hard for the win on the marathon against Bella Bayliss who came in second. At Ironman 70.3 Racine, it was Jessica Jacobs who finished on top over Dede Griesbauer who was stoked to be on the podium again in second place. Griesbauer hasn’t seen the podium since 2009, and looks like she’s back on the road to recovering some form. Australian, Christie Sym was third.

At Ironman 70.3 Lake Stevens, it was 2010 Ironman World Champion, Mirinda Carfrae who took the win against a small field, and no one was in the same post code as her on the run. Finally, in a strong field at Ironman 70.3 Vineman, it was Meredith Kessler who could do no wrong again, notching up her 5th win for the season – Ironman 70.3 New Zealand, Ironman St George, Ironman 70.3 Eagleman, Ironman Coeur d’Alene and now Ironman 70.3 Vineman. She also has a third at Oceanside 70.3 and a 2nd at Rev3 Portland. In second place was Australia’s Mel Hauschildt, who despite her lack of run training due to injuries, smashed out a 1:18:47 half marathon, and the fastest split of the day to slide into second place after chasing out of the swim. Amy Marsh rounded out the podium in third. Other big names rocked up to this event including the likes of Heather Jackson who had an impressive 1:18:58 run split, Leanda Cave, who had struggled with back issues since her win at Alcatraz, and our very own Rebekah Keat who looks to be firing again, and her calf injury starting to settle. With a 1:21:36 half marathon, things are looking promising for Bek.
