December 2012

December saw quite a number of the team racing in Asia and Australia with two team favorite races Ironman 70.3 Phuket and Ironman Bussleton. Capt. Carl also had a successful campaign in his qualifying races for the ITU Sprint World Champs – to be held in London 2013, he raced in Adelaide and Perth. So without Further ado… the girls have done it again.

Tri2aspire Athlete of the Month December 2012

 Lisa ‘Fentonator’ Fenton

Lisa was selected for her personal performance in Ironman Bussleton. This was Lisa’s 3rd Ironman race following her first in South Africa in 2011 and 2nd in Roth in July 2012, unfortunately Lisa didn’t have a great race in Roth facing issues on the bike, and after overcoming massive doubts in triathlon and herself she persisted, trained hard and all her efforts paid off. Lisa had a fantastic race achieving a PB… check out Lisa’s race report here. Lisa is a testimony to dedication, hard work and self belief, proven in one of the toughest races you can face! Well done Lisa 🙂
