Health and Sports Physiotherapisy superstar physio Wendy Casterton has just returned after more age group World Championship triathlon success. First stop was Port Elizabeth in South Africa where she finished 12th in her age group in the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. The event takes place over two days with all women racing on the first day and men on the second. Wendy had the opportunity to share the course with four-time Ironman World Champion Daniela Ryf and rising GB star Lucy Charles.
Next stop was the Gold Coast in Australia for the ITU age group world champs and Wendy posted solid top ten finishes in her age group coming 6th and 9th in the sprint and standard distances respectively. For company Wendy had British triathlon stars Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, Non Stanford and newly-crowned world champion Vicky Holland. BBC Breakfast’s Louise Minchin was also competing.
Most people would be now glad of the rest but Wendy is back in an intense training regime ahead of her next race, an Ironman 70.3, in Turkey at the end of October 2018!
