2XU sponsored teamTBB's Caroline Steffen claims first IM Victory!
A huge congratulations to 2XU sponsored teamTBB star Caroline 'Xena' Steffen on first WTC Ironman victory yesterday! Steffen went into the iconic Port Mac race as the hot favourite and delivered despite tough circumstances.
On the bike, Steffen came up against two punctures after having built an 11-minute lead by the 90k marker. Despite this, she entered T2 9 minutes clear of the next pro woman. Steffen felt strong on the run but an old foot injury surfaced and forced her to jog home, surviving to protect her lead and take the victory.
A total of 7 teamTBB athletes raced across 3 continents this weekend. For all the official race reports, athlete blogs and forum discussions please check: www.teamtbb.com
