Tereza Macel wins IM Canada

SLS3 athlete Tereza Macel had a picture perfect race at the Ironman Canada that started with a superb swim time of 51:11 and a 2 minute lead on Belinda Granger.

Macel pretty much had flown the coup and further and further distanced herself from her pursuers. Her 4:58:13 bike split got her back into T2 14 minutes up on Granger and 16 minutes up on Tara Norton. Everyone else was petty much in a different time zone and only a complete melt down by Macel could have prevented the inevitable.

Macel though ran a 3:17:52 marathon and that time was only beaten by Janelle Morrison's time of 3:17:49. She crossed the finish line in 9:11:20 for her third Ironman title - racing in compression socks - and almost half an hour ahead of runner-up Granger.
