McBride Nails Kona Slot With Sixth in Frank­furt

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - NEWS -

Add yet an­other name to the Cana­dian Kona list: Rachel McBride’s im­pres­sive race sea­son, es­pe­cially in the cham­pi­onship events, has earned her a Kona slot in Oc­to­ber. In April, McBride fin­ished fourth at the Iron­man African Cham­pi­onship in South Africa. She fol­lowed that up with a win at Iron­man 70.3 Vic­to­ria in June, a run­ner-up fin­ish at Iron­man 70.3 Mont-Trem­blant and then nailed her spot for Kona with a sixth-place fin­ish at the al­ways com­pet­i­tive Iron­man Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship in Frank­furt.—TMC, WITH FILES FROM CHRIS DOR­NAN/ TRIATHLON ON CANADA
