Carmen ‘ Zee ‘ Macheriotou raced the K1Man Middle distance in Cyprus this weekend, returning as 2016 Champion she was confident despite the big changes to the bike course she could do very well.
Zee linked up with me 4 months ago and is really starting to turn a corner, she works very hard and being a young mum should an inspiration for all women out there. Zee delivered a great performance on the day crossing the line 1st female and 2nd overall up there with the guys. The swim went very well exiting in 26min a massive 3min PB, onto the bike where 1400m of climbing wasn’t going to be easy, But Zee loves a challenge and took it out picking off the males 1 by 1 putting her further and further up the overall leaders list. On to the run and Zee just needed to keep pushing but in the end could gun down the lead male but showed her contiued progress crossing the line just 4mins down on the winner.
This athlete is fast in impressing and am very excited for Zees progress and future as we have plenty more to come.
Louella Oherhily has a little hit out this w/e at the Bournmouth Half Marathon, again Lou’s only been with me a short time, there is a fair amount of work being done behind the scenes for 2018 season already and probably without Lou realising, Lou works hard and just gets her head down and does the work, so crossing the line in 1hr 30min a 2min PB is a nice little breakthrough for her, Very well done
Claire Weller went to the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon looking for a PB and on this course isn’t exactly a easy task given the fact its not flat. However always willing to give anything a go Claire set out to lets say find a couple of things out about herself, so when she looked at her watch to find she was on for a PB it was time to hold on and focus on all the things shes learnt and that she did crossing the line with a 4min PB in 3hrs 20mins. Claire’s only been in the sport just a little over a season and only linked up with me early this year and is is showing great progress, shes had a great season and I’m excited for 2018 well done

Life goes on outside of Kona!
Really pleased to report the fantastic result of little pistol, Julie Derron. Again hit the top 10 at an international open race finishing 6th at the ETU Melilla European Cup Final. Julie produced excellent performances in each discipline. Each outing sees Julie improve her run thus making her an exciting prospect for the future.
Andrej Vistica also finished 6th at Natureman; more a training day, as he has produced great results over a triple ironman. Schedule in 6 weeks. Great to hear he is now soaking up the French experience on a holiday road trip. Great work Andrej.
Race Recap from Coach Michelle Barnes:
Two of my Aussie athletes took in the Olympic Distance race in Robina on Sunday and finished with podiums for both.
I thought as a kick off to Craig’s Ultraman Training we would start with a little bit of speed and he came out with a blistering swim & bike and hung on for 2nd at the Robina Olympic Distance.
Nat did something very similar and ended up finishing on the podium with 3rd. Great hit out for both of them before they take on Hervey Bay 100 next month!
Race Recap from Coach Mary Beth Ellis:
Miriam Cole had a stellar race in Ironman MD finishing 2nd in her age group in just over 10:50. Miriam had a solid swim 1:18, best bike time 5:09, and great run leading her age group for most of the marathon. Fighting cramps, Miriam lost the top spot by a few minutes at the finish line but left it all out on the race course in a brave race.
Meanwhile in Toughman South Carolina, Scott Wright broke some personal barriers and captured a podium in his age group. Scott raced the half distance in a PR of 5:19 on a tough course and finally cracked the 2 hour barrier on the run. This is a great step on his path to racing ironman AZ.
Race Recap from Coach Vassilis Krommidas:
This week Wendy Casterton participated in Lydney sprint dist. Triathlon. After a solid swim who took out of the water in front positions in the challenging bike course she has a problem with the chain, this cost her some time because from this point and then she have to go only with big ring in the uphill’s so the training that we use in trisutto with big gears was very helpful At the last part of the race in running leg keeping a steady pace and came to the 2nd place overall!
Mania Bikof in another multiple race weekend in Greek Island Spetses she took the 2nd position in 25 km run race in challenging course with a PB by 15min. The previous day she took part in 5km swimming race finishing in 2nd position and in 10km run race 3d place in her age group. Three races in a Weekend is unbelievable and shows the improvement he has made this season!
Race Recap from Coach Carson Christen:
Maxi Spahn finally had the mechanical luck and used his good fitness to produce a late season victory at the Guntersleben MTB race in Germany this past week! It’s been a few weeks coming, and glad we could end the season on a good note and coach is already looking forward to next season, injury-free and win-filled! Great work Maxi!
Sascha Moryson traveled to Netherlands for some cyclocross racing this past weekend. After a solid MTB season, Sascha used some great fitness and was able to produce his first ever Dutch cyclocross race podium, finishing in 3rd, while also competing on a borrowed bike! Way to make it happen, Sascha!
Race Recap from Coach Robbie Haywood:
After a few easier weeks at the end of the summer season of racing, Flora Colledge raced in the Inzlinger Volkslauf a 10.2k off road trail race, and enjoyed wet muddy conditions to take an excellent win. We’ll continue to use similar events for speed work, as well as fun, during a period of reverse periodisation with fewer hours and less volume over the European winter, with a focus on speed and sports specific strength workouts.
Congratulations to all athletes competing this weekend.
