Corinne Abraham, member of the Uplace-BMC Pro Triathlon Team, finished 3rd in IM 70.3 Austin. Due to injury and a bacterial infection, Corinne couldn’t race for 6 months, whereby she had to miss out on this year IM World Championships. With only a short period of of full training in the bag, Corinne is clearly on the way up again after a difficult couple of months.
Corinne finished off the 1.2mile swim in 15th position, not the place she would like to be. But at the halfway mark on the bike, she had already made up a lot of time and was settling herself comfortable in top ten, with only one minute and a half behind top 5. Corinne kept pushing and rounded off the bike section in 5th position. Although she moved herself up from 15th to 5th spot, she was not completely satisfied about the bike part. “I couldn’t push myself on the bike, it felt like I missed a 6th gear”, she said.
Corinne is now staying and training in Austin until the 20th November before travelling to Cozumel for the Ironman on 29th November.
