Abraham has just set a new running record as the fifth IRONMAN title goes for Belgian Frederik Van Lierde in yesterday’s event in Nice.
Despite last season’s bad luck when Britain’s Corinne Abraham could not get herself to take first place after taking second in three IRONMAN races in Lanzarote, Austria, and in Copenhagen, yesterday’s IRONMAN finally gave her the desired outcome.

Her winning time was 9:11:39, breaking the previous course record of 9:12:21 which was set four years ago by Tine Deckers.
IRONMAN France thus adds to previous full distance victories for Abraham in Melbourne, Frankfurt and Cozumel.
