7th place at Ironman Barcelona earns Scottish Ironman Record

Ritchie Nicholls produced an 8:13:01 finish on Sunday at Ironman Barcelona, making him the new Scottish Ironman record holder. The previous best was set three years ago at the same venue by Graeme Stewart. Ritchie has now improved Graeme's figures by three minutes and 41 seconds, which will also place him joint sixth in the list of fastest British iron-distance men.

It also make it something of a family double, as Ritchie's wife, Eimear Mullan, is the Irish Ironman record holder. She also recorded her best to date at Ironman Barcelona 12 months ago.
