Here is the second part of our weekend roundup from the Bank Holiday weekend. You can find part one HERE.

International Racing

We reported on the Ford Ironman Louisville in part one of our roundup. The other Ironman on the calendar was the long running Subaru Ironman Canada in Penticton. Jordan Rapp took his first Ironman win in dominating style, working through to the head of the field in the final third of the bike leg, and then running a race best 2:55:32 marathon too, finally finishing a full 15 minutes clear of Mike Aigroz (SUI). TeamTBB athlete Tereza Macel (CZE) won Ironman Lake Placid in fine style just last month, but once again produced a fantastic performance, leading from gun-to-tape, to finish almost 30 minutes clear of multiple Ironman winner Belinda Granger.
