Gossage wins Ironman UK for third time

Britain’s, and 220’s columnist, Lucy Gossage has successfully defended her Ironman UK title in Bolton at the weekend, while in the men’s pro race Kirill Kotsegarov was the victor.


 Fresh from the Ironman European championship in Frankfurt just 2 weeks ago, Katja Konschak, was first out of the water but was quickly wheeled in by the charging Tine Deckers (BEL) and Lucy Gossage (GBR). The pair traded the lead for the first 60 miles, after which Gossage made her move, gaining about 4 minutes as she headed out of T2. Gossage then went on to finish in a time of 09:26:05. 

 Tine Decker pushed hard on the run, to produce a brilliant second place finishing in 09:45:21, ahead of Katja Konschak completing the podium in 10:13:18.
