Absolutley outstanding performances by both women showing that the standard and depth of women's triahtlon in the East of England is second to none. Lucy Charles who started in her Triathlon journey several years ago at a GO TRI Event in Hertford has turned into the most amazing triathlete who continues to go from strength to strenght. There is no stopping her.
Morrison a Tri-Anglia member finished eighth in the elite women’s classification in a time of four hours, 12 minutes and 25 seconds.
Morrison, from Bale, near Fakenham, finished the 1.9km swim in 28.33mins to climb out of the water in 13th place.
The 29-year-old then smashed the 90km cycle in 02:08.21 hours to climb off her bike in second position, battling with Ironman world champion Daniela Ryf in the early stages of the final stage, a 21.1km run.
After completing the final leg in 01:31.10 hours Morrison crossed the line in eighth place, before later posing a photo on Twitter of herself running alongside Ryf, writing: “Today was a dream come true.”
Morrison turned professional in September 2015 and won Ironman 70.3 Buenos Aires in Argentina during a successful debut season last year.
