Great weekend for SLS3 athletes around the world

This last weekend has been another great weekend for SLS3 athletes Petr Vabrousek and Jessica Jacobs.
Petr was racing Ironman Lanzarote - one of the hardest IM races in the world, wearing his new triathlon suit. " It wasn´t an easy day today - strong winds on the bike and the heat on the run. But that is OK, Ironman isn´t meant to be an easy affair." After a good swim and a solid bike Petr finished 6th overall. He is now in 11th place at the Kona Pro Ranking. His next Ironman race will be in Cairns in 2 weeks.

At Ironman 70.3 Jessica Jacobs won her first race of the season. After getting second off the bike Jessica pushed forward to earn the fastest run split of the day and claim her title.
