Photographer and athlete Rob Holden (www.robholdenphotography.com) was in Frankfurt this past weekend at the Ironman European Championships, and has provided us with these great images from the event.


Ironman European Championships - Frnankfurt, Sunday 8th July 2012

Belgian Marino Vanhoenacker exited the 3.8km swim with a small deficit to the likes of Andreas Raelert, Jan Raphael and Clemente Alonso-McKernan. That was the nearest he got to showing any weakness on this day.

Germany's Andreas Raelert was arguably the pre-race favourite to regain the title he won in 2010. A bike crash at 90km didn't help his cause, and he was to finish fourth this time around.

Known as 'Xena', Switzerland's Caroline Steffen was in dominant Warrior Princess mode and retained her Frankfurt title - crossing the line more than 13 minutes clear of second placed Anja Beranek.

After a nightmare 2011, Corinne Abraham is having a breakthrough 2012 - a 3:08:14 marathon took her through to a superb third place.

Marino was first on to the run course - and a 2:48:19 marathon ensured that was the way it remained throughout the 26.2 miles.
