Sam Baxter of Team Freespeed had a day he won't forget in a hurry on Sunday at Ironman UK.

11th overall and third Age Grouper in 2011, Sam exceeded that performance by finishing fifth overall - and just 20 seconds from third placed Paul Hawkins - as well as crossing the line as the first Age Group athlete overall in 2012.

Kona slot secured, after a 9:12 performance on his debut in Hawaii last season, Sam will have hopes of reaching the Kona podium in October.

We spoke to Sam after his win at The Beaver earlier this year, and we were at the finish in Bolton as he talked through his Ironman UK experience.
