Cambridge, Maryland – Felt triathlete and reigning Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae continued her solid 2011 campaign with a win at the Ironman 70.3 Eagleman. The 30-year-old Australian was once again untouchable on the run, recording the fastest run split en route to victory.
Carfrae, who just took second place in the Revolution3 Quassy last week, was again strong from the beginning of the race. She achieved the third fastest split on the swim and on the bike, and was never too far away from the lead. On the run, Carfrae, caught fire. Her run split was the fastest of all female competitors by nearly five minutes and ensured Carfrae of the win.
“I am so pleased to have backed up Quassy half's battle with the Dibmaster with a win here," Carfrae told slowtwitch.com after the race. “After an awesome albeit busy off-season I am starting to feel like I am back on track with my Kona build up.”
Fellow Felt triathlete Terenzo Bozzone also competed at Eageleman, taking tenth in the men’s race while continuing to build his fitness for Worlds later this year.
