Great job everyone- had a family thing on all day but tracked all that were racing. 

And yes i got in trouble for looking at my phone too much by wifey!

So I'm not the only one huh... But it was well worth it!

Wish I could have been there in person, I wouldn't have been able to do the event but would have loved to watch it and meet a few more of you lovely people.  I'm really missing not being involved so much any more...

 Nice medal Katz, I believe that Terenzo Bozzone & Caroline Steffen got ones that look exactly the same!  :thumbsup:

Time's irrelevant, it's the enjoyment of the journey that matters.

Well done. I especially like the matching outfit and medal ribbon combo!

Picachu? 

I laughed my arse off at that. 

 

Great work KieranR 

**** you looked solid during the bike. And thanks for wording up Pete Murray about stuff, you didn't have to. Forever grateful. Ivy was beside herself. 

 

Massive thanks again to Stikman. Basically babied me all day, forever grateful. 

 

Hope Katz gets home. She was in good spirits when I saw her. 

 

RBR, mate thanks. I think I sobbed and snotted on you at the end. 

 

Thanks very much to MJK for the hard love and then the pep talk during the run. 

 

AP, cheers for the high five. Meant a lot. 

 

All watching - ❤️🙏

I got a message relayed from the silent adviser on the last lap, oh **** I have never gone where I went. 

Just made a fat kid with freckles' dream come true. 

 

Race report will be late... Pretty crook. 

 

Thanks 

Love your work Sam. You made cry 😍

Well done RBR and to all the racer out there. Tough day for me, for me it started well 1:07 swim vs 1:17 at Cairns. Pushed the bike too hard and imploded, more than 15m slower on the 2nd lap. The run lasted 18km then I ran walked with a mate who was also sufferring. 10:35 for a bad day isn't too shabby but obviously not the sub 10 result I was hoping for. Good to see the worst draft cheat in my AG only finished 15th, it was a shocking display of sportsmanship, I hope I don't sound to bitter bit I call it as I see it.

Well done mate, plan b & 10.35 is a great result.

We stayed on first floor in Forster up a full flight of stairs, AND I had a manual car. Lucky I was too drunk for 2 days to drive. :)

Beer mile - 2:30pm after the awards ceremony outside of The Goose at the start of the jetty for an expected 2:45 start.

You know the drill.  BYO fizzy alcoholic beverages x 5 (just in case.)

OK Sam.

Was it worth it in the end? You looked like you had fun (at least up until you started spewing).

And what was Mooj's reaction after it all?

At Port this year (my first Ironman) I ended up on the 4th floor of a stair access only apartment. With 2 kids worth of gear in addition to tri stuff.  I have never hated stair more in my life than that Monday morning.

 

But he worst part - I have just realised I booked the same accommodation for next year.....

It soon wears off, I've been living here 18 months and well over the place. You're keen going to political rally. Politicians here are worse than Australia and being in the wrong place at the wrong time, can mean death or disability.

Oh I only went to the rally to see the atmosphere. I have no idea of who is who or what they stand for but they know how to work up a crowd.

And I'm sure just like anywhere the experience as a visitor is very different. The longest I've spent here is 2 months in Jaipur which I loved but I was still in "visitor" mode.

Don’t worry I told him to take another pic as this one was not suitable, he clicked the button too early!  There is a more applicable pic on his phone!  I was ashamed with this one also! 😂😂😂

If only he had spent less than 12 mins in T1 and 17 mins in T2 he might have been an official' finisher...😃

Today I have had to winch myself down onto the toilet and timing became critical, thankfully it ended well.

My time in Busso has been short but I've been very impressed with the race venue. Next time I'll bring the family here for a good holiday, maybe even next year;)

Safe travels and recovery well

Thanks for the support, I had a PB swim, couldn’t hang onto anyone’s feet so found myself in no mans land but the goal was always sub 1:20 swim which I achieved, bike I’m stoked with, nailed the plan and biked 5:27, got off and legs felt good but the lingering ITB tightness was noticeable, I haven’t run for 4 weeks so didn’t know what to expect, I ran well for 25km walking the aid stations to reset the body position, but it got progressively worse and at 25km the ITB said no more, so the last 17km was 500 walk 500 run.  So I’m happy but frustrated at the same time.  Overall beat my previous best time by close to 30 mins I think.

Great racing - well done 😊

Rest assured that the Port Beer Mile thread will be up in advance of the event.

The Busselton Beer Mile is a little more exclusive than that rabble over in Port.  We don't allow just anyone in, a little like the Freemasons.  To become one, ask one (or read posts and social media, if you can't be bothered then you don't want it bad enough.)

Anyone know anything about the AG who came 6th overall. On twits they're saying he got hit by a car during the bike leg and still managed to finish in 9:02.

nasty happenings on course at Busso.  Just saw this on FB

 

.... by Shannon at #ironmanwesternaustralia finishing 3rd in her category after being deliberately crashed into whilst leading. Riding 140km with a broken bike and a broken arm, Shannon called on all her reserves to somehow get to the finish line. Finishing what is started is worth so much to Shannon and we are extremely proud of her never say die attitude.

Quite simply a disgusting incident we have requested @ironmanoceania to take seriously with an investigation.
