#GBKona 2017: Boo Smith talks Kona debut

Chief Correspondent

Another #GBKona 2017 debutant – Boo Smith

Great Britain’s Boo Smith joined Hillingdon Triathletes around nine years ago – and at the time, could swim around 25 metres of front crawl. Slowly.

Nine years (and a LOT of training) later – and with several English, British and European Championship medals collected along the way – Boo is racing at the IRONMAN World Championship for the first time.

“It’s a dream come true” she says. Meet Boo… who also happens to be this Editor’s sister-in-law.
