After a dramatic DNF due to outside circumstances at the Ironman African Championship, Jodie Swallow made an emphatic return to Ironman racing with a wire-to-wire win at the Ironman Asia Pacific Championship in Cairns — 14th overall smashing the bike course record by 17 minutes and the course record by four minutes. A powerful performance to win another ITU Long Distance World Championship in Oklahoma last weekend is a real confidence booster heading into the big one. The Briton races with heart and will commit to no less than doing her best come race day.
