Can Daniela Ryf Take Record Fifth Title at 70.3 World Champs

Friday 06 September 2019

Since the first IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship was held in 2006 the women’s race has seen 10 different champions from five different countries. Swiss Daniela Ryf has won an event-best four times and could become the first athlete, male or female, to win the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship a fifth time. Together with Mirinda Carfrae (AUS) and Leanda Cave (GBR), Ryf also holds the distinction of having won the IRONMAN World Championship as well the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
 
Trying to dethrone Ryf will be a stellar group of female triathletes: Great Britain’s Holly Lawrence, who was crowned IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion in 2016 in Queensland (Australia), and Lucy Charles-Barclay, who comes off wins at the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship and IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire, are considered strong contenders for the top podium. Also, Germany’s Anne Haug, who placed third at last year’s IRONMAN World Championship and IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, has recovered from injury and is eager to build on her reputation as a fierce competitor. Additional global competition will come from Ellie Salthouse (AUS), Emma Pallant (GBR) and Radka Kahlefeldt (CZE), each of whom continue to impress on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit. With the strong lineup, only one athlete in the field, however, can claim she knows what it takes to win in Nice: Manon Genet of France will be representing the host nation after her commanding victory at last year’s inaugural IRONMAN 70.3 Nice triathlon which was held on this year’s championship course.
