Earlier this year, Great Britain’s Bex Rimmington was announced as one of the four athletes selected for the first Specialized Zwift Academy Triathlon Team.
That was quite a feat for Bex in itself, given “The team will have an annual focus on competing at the Ironman World Championships at Kona, Hawaii.” Well, Bex will be doing her FIRST Ironman race in Bolton on 15th July. No pressure then!
That said, Bex as a distinguished sporting background (including a European Age-Group Triathlon Championship way back in 2005), and so while she is the ‘wildcard’ among the four athletes chosen, the selection team clearly has belief in her potential.
You can get an insight into what Bex has been up to in the video diary above – which includes her first half-iron distance race (which she won), a confidence booster after a recent injury.
Remember, Bex will be leading Wednesday nights TRI247 Workout Series session on Zwift – full details of which are HERE. Join us on the virtual roads of Watopia and support Bex in her attempt to qualify for Kona at the first attempt.
