Second place at IRONMAN Copenhagen

It’s been a busy – and successful – season for ‘Cozza’

It’s been a very different year for Great Britain’s Corinne Abraham. With a remarkably consistent record of IRONMAN racing (see her full history below), in recent years the biggest issue has been getting to the start line at all, on a consistent basis, as injuries have thwarted her racing schedule.

That’s not been the case this year and, as she recently told me (CLICK HERE FOR FULL INTERVIEW), ” I am keen to make the most of my time in the sport with more racing.”

Despite having secured her Kona start in the July points cutoff, Corinne was keen to race again, and on Sunday – after finishing second recently at IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia – IRONMAN Copenhagen was the venue for her third full-distance event of the 2017 season.

After second in Lanzarote (to Lucy Charles) and second in Austria (to Eva Wutti), it would be another second place finish – this time behind local favourite, Michelle Vesterby.

That represented Corinne’s tenth career IRONMAN podium finish – check out the full history of IRONMAN success for British women HERE,
