Charlotte Paul Wins Ironman China

Charlotte is a Trigger Point Athlete and her Husband is our Australian Distributor and Ironguides Coach.

We are so proud of her accomplishment.

In conditions rivaling the toughest of any Ironman on earth (with temperatures as high as 113 degrees F), Charlotte Paul and Rasmus Henning took the titles at the second running of Ironman China. Henning led from gun to finish in his first Ironman race. Though he struggled in the marathon (and cited that he missed a special needs bag), Henning won with a nearly 30 minute margin over second place Patrick Wallimann, with his time of 8:53:20. Wallimann’s time was 9:22:49, and Jozsef Major finished third in 9:38:52.

Coming back from what she thought was a disappointing race in New Zealand, Charlotte Paul ran her way from fourth off the bike to first place, with the fastest marathon overall (3:35:44), finishing in 9:48:14. Her time was good enough for fifth place overall, in an event that melted some of the best athletes in the world. Edith Niederfriniger finished second in 10:01:39, and Tereza Macel, who had led for the swim and the bike, finished third in 10:13:43.
