Gold for Gill Fullen and Clive Kennedy-Burn at IRONMAN 70.3 Euro Champs

Alongside the fantastic performance from Adam Bowden on Sunday in the Pro race (read more HERE), at the IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship in Elsinore, Denmark, several British Age-Group athletes also achieved podium positions in their respective categories.

After a punctured-impacted DNF at the recent ETU Powerman Middle Distance Duathlon European Championships (also in Denmark), Gill Fullen was back to winning ways again on her return to Scandinavia, winning the F50-54 division by more than 17 minutes.

Gill made headlines last year, when she won – overall – both the Outlaw Half Nottingham and Outlaw full distance (in a course record time), less than a year after recovering from cancer. Gill was also the subject of, by far, the most popular interview I did in 2017 on TRI247. If you haven’t seen it, you really should. Click the link below and be amazed.

Great Britain’s second Age-Group Gold was courtesy of Clive Kennedy-Burn, who won the F45-49 category by more than five minutes. Clive won his division at the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga last year, so is no stranger to a championship podium. He also won this race 12 months ago too.

Another World Championship podium finisher added a European medal to that. Adrian Carr (M55-59) finished fourth in Chattanooga (as with Kona, IRONMAN 70.3 World Champs podium runs to the top five), and he added a second place in Elsinore.

The final British medal – a Bronze – went to Katherine Renouf, third in the F25-29 category. Coincidentally, it was Katherine who finished second overall to Gill Fullen last year at the British Age-Group Duathlon Championships in Bedford.

Congratulations to all four athletes on their success.
