Holly Lawrence tops the podium in De Moines

Monday, June 21, 2021, 03:41 AM GMT

Holly Lawrence has roared back into form with a wire-to-wire win at the Ironman 70.3 Des Moines.


Overcoming the challenges of a delayed start and shortened bike course due to a thunderstorm early on Sunday morning, the British athlete led from the gun on the swim. She then charged ahead with an aggressive bike leg to gap the field by three minutes. This gave her breathing room on the half marathon, as her competitors ran out of road to bridge the gap. Lawrence brought the win home with a time of 2:53:46.


The win is an excellent indicator of fitness, after she finished sixth at the Ironman 70.3 North American Championship in St. George last month. Lawrence, who won all four Ironman 70.3 continental championships in 2019, has set her sights on next weekend’s Ironman 70.3 European Championship in Elsinore, Denmark.
