Huge Weekend of Wins for 2XU's Team TBB!
2XU's triathlon powerhouse teamTBB continue to prove a force to be reckoned with this weekend, collecting two wins and an impressive second.
Mary Beth Ellis claimed the Ironman Austria women's title in true teamTBB fashion, leading from start to finish in 8 hours 43 minutes 43 seconds. Just her first long distance race, Mary Beth clocked the fastest women's swim split in 48 minutes 7 seconds in her 2XU wetsuit.
Over at Ironman Korea, teamTBB's Maki Nishiushi claimed 2nd on a very hot and humid day in Jeju and was first woman out the water (looking sensational in her 2XU Project:X wetty here). Husband Hiro Nishushi, despite colliding with a motorcycle on the bike leg, placed 4th - a great day for the duo! Unfortunately, however, Jocelyn Wong, competing in her last Ironman for teamTBB, was not so fortunate and was rushed to hospital following a car crash whilst on the bike. We understand she is recovering nicely & from all at 2XU - our warmest wishes!
