Kona Women’s Age Groupers
With age, the mindset of an athlete goes from trying to get faster to preserving the fitness you have. If you can do this while those around you are slowing down then you can move up the rankings.
In our recent trip to the Ironman World Championships we interviewed these 5 ladies, who are all over the age of 50. As you will hear they are all getting better with age!
In particular, listen out for these comments
“I’m keeping my speed while my competitors slow down”
“I’m getting closer to 50 and my bike splits havent deteriorated”
“I’m 61 and my competition is slowing down a lot more than I am”
and one of the killer comments for me
“I ran my fastest Ironman marathon last year at the age of 50 beating my previous best by 30 minutes”
