  • David McNamee

    The IRONMAN World Championship in Kona has created some legends of the sport and in some peoples view it is the very pinnacle of sporting endeavour. This year’s edition is set to be one of the greatest we have ever witnessed.

    The start list for the men’s and women’s races boast Olympic Champions, World Champions and World record holders across all distances of triathlon, setting up an incredible battle between the very best the sport has seen over the last decade (and perhaps lifespan) of the sport.

    HUUB’s greatest hopes lie in double Olympic Champion Alistair Brownlee (GBR) and David McNamee (GBR) who has finished 3rd in 2017 and 2018, but they will certainly not have an easy run!

  • Alistair Brownlee

    The spectacular course in Nice attracted stars from both the ITU and long course circuit and was the perfect test for both types of athletes. Alongside the PRO men and women, thousands of Age Group athletes also headed to the south of France to try and claim a World title on a somewhat unconventional championship course.

  • Alistair Brownlee

    HUUB's Alistair Brownlee (GBR) will start as one of the favourites in the men's race after finishing a close second last year. The double Olympic Champion looks to have had a better build-up to the Championships this year so we will hope to see him full of racing come Sunday.

  • We will be seeing Alistair Brownlee (GBR) at Kona this year!

    This was after double Olympic Champion won Ironman Cork over the weekend. There was one slot available for both the Pro men and Pro women and soon after finishing Alistair confirmed he would indeed accept his place, confirming his intentions to focus on long distance racing in the second half the season. It now looks like he will be on the start line for both the 70.3 World Champs and now the Ironman World Champs.

  • Alistair Brownlee Silver

    Alistair Brownlee returned to racing at the weekend for IRONMAN 70.3 Marbella. Brownlee led out of the water with a 39-second lead, but what appeared to be a mechanical issue on the bike put him 7 minutes back, arriving at T2 10 minutes down. Not giving up, a 1:11:03 run split took him to a comfortable second place.

    Jess Learmonth led out of the water at the Bermuda round of the World Triathlon Series. By the end of the 40km bike in tricky conditions, Learmonth had formed a trio with Katie Zaferes and Lottie Miller who had a gap of 2.30 minutes. On the last lap of the run, it was clear Zaferes would claim her victory, but Learmonth looked strong in second place. Her second place finish also placed her second in the series rankings after her podium at the previous WTS round.

    The IM World Championships in Kona lived up to all the hype and expectations. Although the race didn't go exactly to script there was still some epic battles out on the course and near perfect race conditions allowed for incredibly fast racing as numerous records were obliterated.
