Ironman Western Australia 2017 (December 3) full and half ironman truly delivered the real Australian experience - all in one day! Sharks, kangaroos, a bush fire, and 34C weather were all on the menu for a fantastic and memorable race down south.
This was my first race with the Tritons and one that went very smoothly. Having done previous events with groups of friends, this was my first 'going solo', but joining up with fellow Tritons Andres, Domingo, Thomas, Tim, Siobhan, Dana & Brenda made for a great weekend away.
As a number of Tritons have already qualified for 2018 70.3 World Championship in South Africa, and as we would know Tritons love to fly our colours high and race together, that gave me extra motivation to find a race to qualify so that I can race with them. With the year ending, there weren't many races to choose from. With some Tritons signed up for Xiamen 70.3, I decided to go for this race as my A race this year and try to qualify for the worlds for the very first time.
