Not a good day for either of the top-ranked GB athletes at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. Tim Don picked up two blue cards on the bike section, served his time in the penalty box and seems to have pulled the pin at that point. Jodie Swallow completed the swim and T1 but never reached 20k on the bike and there's no clue on the online commentary as to why she pulled out.

UPDATE Jodie apparently crashed on Saturday and details are as follows courtesy of the Bahrain Endurance 13 press release: After a crash yesterday when her tyre blew out on a 15-percent descent, Jodie Swallow still opted to start, but pulled the pin on her race during the bike leg. She said, "Body just locked up today from yesterday’s crash."

Best GB result was Suzie Cheetham in seventh followed by Holly Lawrence in 11th, Emma Kate Lidbury in 21st and Parys Edwards in 23rd. Ritchie Nicholls, our only other male pro athlete, was 27th.

As soon as the results are final we'll see how the age groupers did and report back separately - though as we predicted, Gill Fullen did win Gold in the F50-54 category.
