March 2012

This month we have seen our first T2A Ironman competitor in 2012 take Melbourne by storm, we had the Disgusting Dirty Dead Dog Duathlon at the beginning of the month and the majority of the team were ‘cleansed’ on heartbreak hill at the annual T2A Jebel Hafeet Camp in Al Ain. We have 5 nominations in March, and for the first time we have a unanimous decision from the Committee…

MARCH 2012

T2A ATHLETE OF THE MONTH

HRH Captain Carl Luitingh

Captain Carl Luitingh – the legend of the team, Carl has got his mojo back after a disappointing South Africa and S.Korea last year he has come back to form running his way to an impressive 10h40, ranking 8th in AG 55-59 in what proved to be an incredibly competitive field in the inaugural Ironman Melbourne.

Miss Annie P – Emirates Hills Half Marathon
Annie P has a new half marathon PB taking 11-mins off her PB in Winsor last year. Pimms has taken the Aerofit Tz1 philosophy and proven going slow really does make you quicker!

Suisse Marc ‘King of the Mountain’ – Jebel Hafeet Camp
Suisse Marc officially owns Hafeet and he led that wolf pack around and really turned the screws on Ed, Piers and Marshman and I am sure they are the first to agree that he really is a mountain goat.

Johan Moolman – Jebel Hafeet Camp
Johan will be the first to admit he has come a long way since the Hafeet camp last year 🙂 He dug deep and fought hard against Higsy and Venny all weekend with a solid performance throughout.

Amer Alaily – Disgusting Dirty Dead Dog Duathlon
Amer showed maturity on the DDDDD and maintained his pacing throughout the 16km run and 90km bike. Basically he didn’t blow up which for Amer is pretty impressive 🙂

In April we see our World Champion Didge go to the ITU European Championships in Israel along with Freddie who is making his AG debut for Belgium, we have Finn, Piers, Captain Kona and Chombie taking a trip to Port Elizabeth to take part in IM South Africa and finally, Hunty will be running the London Marathon 🙂
