Long Description:

Liz Blatchford takes a fantastic victory in Ironman Mont Tremblant and secures her Kona qualification!

Liz Blatchford claimed her second Ironman title of the season in Mont Tremblant after an outstanding performance. The BMC-Vifit Sport athlete crossed the finish line in a winning time of 9:16:45, posting the fastest running split of the day. Adding another Ironman title to her season tally (after her victory in IM Philippines earlier in the year), Liz Blatchford secured her qualification for the World Championship in Hawaii. This brings the total to 7 athletes of the BMC-Vifit Sport Pro Triathlon Team who have now all secured their slot for the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii.

“Safe to say I was a tad emotional running down that chute”, Liz Blatchford looked back at her winning performance. “So unexpected, incredibly sweet. I didn’t even image to win here today. When I took the lead with 7k to go I felt I was dreaming. The adrenaline and the crowd really carried me home. This was sheer determination and experience that got me there. Forever grateful for the fantastic support from my team BMC-Vifit Sport, my husband, family and friends. Next stop Kona!
