Ironman New Zealand 2012 Age-Group Results

There were outstanding performances by age-group triathletes in Ironman New Zealand 2012.

There were sure to be many disappointed age-group athletes when Ironman New Zealand 2012 became a 70.3 event.

There is a lot of effort, time commitment, and expense involved just to make it to the start line of an Ironman Triathlon.

Often it takes a lot of courage for someone to just make it to the start line of an Ironman especially when it is their first attempt.

Unfortunately there are those who only have one shot at Ironman immortality because of family, career, or expense so it may be a long time(if ever)before they get another opportunity.

If there is a bright side, you can at least rest assured that the Ironman Triathlon will be around for many, many years and even if it takes another 10 or 15 years to make it back, the Ironman will be waiting for you.

Despite everything there were some outstanding performances in the 70.3 race and I feel the age-group athletes deserve recognition for their efforts so have taken the time to record the top ten men and women in each age-group.

Congratulations to all of you and I truly hope that one day you have the opportunity to realize your Ironman dream.

If you were part of Ironman New Zealand 2012 I would love to hear your thoughts on the Ironman distance being cancelled and what it meant to you.

Was this to be your first Ironman? How far did you travel to get to the race? How long did you spend training for Ironman New Zealand?

I’m sure visitors to Ironstruck.com would love to read your comments as it is not often that an Ironman race is cancelled.
