British & Irish Age-Group podiums at the debut IRONMAN 70.3 Oman

As you may have read in our Weekend Preview piece (check it out HERE), the debut of IRONMAN 70.3 Oman, Muscat, attracted a significant entry from British and Irish athletes.

The race took place today (Friday), local time, and a quick look through the results indicates several podium finishes (and likely many more World Championship qualification slots), from those entries.

While the event was Age-Group only, we did spot a familiar name still racing (and finishing second overall) in the women’s event – none other than six-time IRONMAN World Champion, Natascha Badmann, winning the F50-54 division by more than 37 minutes and second fastest female overall (4:39:24).

The fastest British athletes overall on the day were Joseph Maynard (4:23:53, 3rd M30-34, 6th overall) and Suzanne Matonti (5:02:27, 3rd F35-37, 7th overall).
