Mandy Newman won the female 40-44 age group by one point.
To get the win Mandy had to race in the pouring rain at Gold Coast and then had to give up her favourite leg at Canberra when they turned it into a Duathlon.
Mandy is a committed, determined athlete who always manages a smile.
Well done, Mandy.

Mandy's race report: "Wow is all I can say, the conditions were treacherous. The rain didn't stop and I was aquaplaning on the bike and many people lost control. The run was wet and very muddy and it was cold. So, all in all, really terrible conditions."
Well done, Mandy! Bring on Shepp.

Jeff Beavis, 1:10:43, 36th M40-44, 12:45-2:28-31:38-2:51-21:08
Jeff was the first Aussie in his age group and bettered his time and his placing compared to Vancouver. Good work, Jeff.
After 36 hours of continual rain it cleared at about 7.00am Saturday morning ready for a 7:45am start.
Water was a very temperate 14 degrees (unlike Vancouver) and transition was under 6-10cm of water.
No warm up swims allowed so was a bit of a sluggish start but worked into swim ok, waded through transition and onto bike, lots of big puddles and water on the course so was steady, completed the big BMX powerslide going round 1st corner but after settled and dinished bike with a PB of 31.30
Run was point to point and to me seemed fairly lonely as was by myself for most if it. Ran strongly to finish in 21.10 for a total time of 1.10.45 which included 2 transitions of 3 minutes. Transition was 600m long!!!

Sunday, 28 March 2010 Ironman Australia
Ironman Australia, Port Macquarie
Gavin Hicks, 10:33, 43rd M3034 59:33-5:43:14-3:50:13 Gavin came 213th overall in a field of 1376 - ie top 15%. Gavin's best leg was his run where he placed 140th overall - ie in the top 10%. Given that the elites missed the worst of the wind on the bike and had finished before the heat really set in, for Gavin to get a top 10% run finish in the heat was a wonderful effort. To top it off, he took 36 minutes off his result from 2009 on what was a much tougher day.
Chris O'Donnell, 11:51:17, 156th M3539, 1:01:02-6:03:17-4:46:57. To go under 12 hours on his first Ironman on such a hot, windy day was a great effort. Well done, Chris.

Julie's race report: "Had a good swim at Torquay this afternoon, coming in 3rd in my age category. Blustery south-westerly winds made heading out to the first buoy a trial, in fact I think I went a bit off-course on that leg! But I made up for this in the 2nd & 3rd legs using the current and choppiness to my advantage, managing to pass a few swimmers with the same green caps. My prize was a really nice Engine silicon swimcap and goggles."
