Philip Graves reflects on second place at IRONMAN Wales

Chief Correspondent

“The run was absolutely brutal!”

For the the second consecutive year, Great Britain’s Philip Graves┬áreturned to Tenby and finished second at IRONMAN Wales on Sunday.

Despite the worst weather in the seven year history of the event, a bike crash, a mid-course detour and taking himself to a ‘dark place’ to close to within 90 seconds of race winner, Cameron Wurf (AUS), Phil was able to smile and talk me through his race at the prize presentation.
