We had an Irish athlete travel to Shanghai and take a Kona slot last week. Click on through for details…
This is the third time Dublin athlete John Woods has qualified for Kona but only his second time racing there. John picked up an injury before he was to race the Ironman world championship for the second time that sidelined him. He will be hoping to avoid that this time around. John placed 3rd in his age group and 45th overall.
