Past weekend was definitely one of those grand slam weekends! With 3 Half Ironmandistances we had 3 major goals coming! Saturday Brooke realised her double after doing a great race again in Deauville (France) She took the win by coming out of the water 2nd and having to wait till the end of the run to be sure of her 2nd consecutive win!

In Troyes (France), approx. 500km further we had Sam and Hans racing in this nice field of athletes! Both of them did a fine race and ended up 10th and 11th scratch within 10’of
winner Damien Fauvre – Felix. With 2700m of swimming they choose a race to make it for both some more difficult to come back…you have to find your challenges 🙂 For Hans, this race was once again hammer on the block in a superseason, while Sam loves this race because it’s organised by his Team and is keen on performing for them and so he did by getting in that top10!
In Ironman70.3 Kraichgau (Germany) Raphael maybe surprised the most! Only some nerves the days before could keep him away from his ticket to the world championships! But he was strong and took his ticket to Zell Am See, World Championships Ironman70.3!
His performance was not only good enough for the ticket, but he also became first Belgian age group athlete! Raphael his season so far is very successfull! With his 4th place in the Half Ironmandistance race of Choisy Au Bac he prooved to be consistent!
Once again our athletes simply conquered Europe, Proud Coach!
