Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae and Sam Long both had the fastest runs of the day and both overcame deficits to win IRONMAN Victoria 70.3 on Sunday.
Both Colorado athletes are having terrific seasons. It was Sam’s second win in as many weeks having won IRONMAN Chattanooga 70.3 just two weeks ago. Rinny took second in IRONMAN Cancun 70.3 at the end of April.
Sam will be racing IRONMAN Boulder next week (June 9th) so come cheer him on for three in row.
Be sure to listen to Mile High Endurance podcast that will be released during IRONMAN Boulder. Rich Soares and Bill Plock interviewed Sam while he was in Canada preparing for Victoria last week. He shared his plans for that race (along with Boulder) and it seems he executed them well!
