FOUR Mandurah Triathlon Club members competed in the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii on October 13.
It was Mark Hunter and Darryl Harris’ first time competing at the world championship, Michelle Boyes’ 10th and David Boyes’ 11th.
All four athletes qualified at the Busselton Ironman in December 2017.
Almost 2500 athletes participated in the championships in Kona, Hawaii.
Known as one of the world’s toughest triathlon races, this year the conditions were relatively mild, with temperatures over 30 degrees celcius and in 80 to 85 per cent humidity.
The Mandurah competitors were coming from the end of the season and trained through winter.
