2008 Ironman Australia – Chrissie Wellington and Patrick Vernay win

Well the fourth Ironman of the year is in the books with Patrick Vernay and Chrissie Wellington sealing victories on a day that saw several weather changes at Port Macquarie for the 2008 Panthers Ironman Australia. For the whole ironmanlive.com recap of the race go here. For the official site head to ironmanoz.com. While I have not kept up with Vernay as much, he sure looks to have had a good race coming in ahead of the two Luke’s. On the women’s side Chrissie extends her dominating ways with a third Ironman in less than one year (Japan, Kona, and now Australia) taking the lead from Kate Major on the run.

When and where is the next Ironman race? Well of course it is Ironman Arizona next Sunday!

    Correction: Chrissie won IM Korea

    This win leaves her undefeated at the Iron distance. Hers will be an interesting & exciting career to follow, I sense.
