North America Championships: Alistair Brownlee wins Ironman 70.3


Alistair Brownlee, the Olympic champ has won the first place today on his Ironman 70.3 debut during North America’s Championships located in St George, Utah.


His latest victory came last month during the middle distance at Challenge Gran Canaria. The truth is, in the today’s race in Utah, Brownlee was competing with a higher, different level of athletes compared to the ones on his previous victory.


Today’s first place, gives Brownlee a secure spot at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship that will happen later in September in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It will be a two-day event on 9 and 10 September, 2017.



Brownlee’s road to success


Brownlee is also known for winning the men’s Olympic triathlon twice! Once in 2012 and last year’s Championship.


In an interview, he admitted today’s victory to be a learning curve towards the World Championship.


“I definitely got something from today, like my nutrition. I couldn’t get enough in my stomach and I felt like I didn’t have enough salts and fluid in me at the end of the run, which is why I had to back off a bit. But that’s the good thing about it for me. I spent a decade doing the Olympics, so it’s really nice to have a different challenge” – he added.
