Eimear Mullan has become the first female triathlete to win the UK 70.3 and full Ironman in the same year, making it a great year for Irish women in triathlon.
The Northern Irish triathlete triumphed at the Ironman UK event in Bolton yesterday, beating close rival Amanda Stevens and winning the race, to go along with the 70.3 race that Mullan won in June.
Eimear, 30, was trailing Stevens after the American built up a 15 minute lead after the 3.8k swim, with the lead still at 13 minutes after the 112 mile bike stage.

Recently we wrote about Velomotion's Mike Smith going to Retül HQ in Boulder, Colorado to learn more about bike fitting.
Here Mike tells us what's been going on and what he's been up to in Colorado.
Since arriving in last Thursday (05/07/12) I've worked at Retül's HQ every week day and spent the Saturday just gone at the National Olympic Centre in Colorado Springs. This is a 1.5 hour drive north of Boulder with Denver in between the two.
