Elite Triathlete Lisa Marangon wins Ironman Yeppoon 70.3
Posted by Ben Addison on Aug 20, 2012
Great news came in today that Australian elite triathlete, Lisa Marangon, crushed the opposition in Ironman Yeppoon 70.3, finishing nearly 4 minutes ahead of the opposition. Lisa has been training on a Wattbike throughout 2012 and it's no doubt helped both her cycle and run legs.
One thing that Lisa has improved on is her run leg off the bike, something we see a lot from triathletes who train on a Wattbike. Recruitment of the correct leg muscles through the fine-tuning of technique using the Wattbike's Polar View reduces fatigue on the bike, and consequently places an athlete in better condition for the run.
Also at the event was Matty White, who also trains on a Wattbike. He finished in a fantastic 3rd spot.
