Emma Pallant-Browne wins silver in the USA


Emma Pallant-Browne put in the fastest run time of the race to secure a silver medal at IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside as she bounced back from a DNF at T100 Miami.

Fellow Brit, Fenella Langridge, led the way on the swim with American Taylor Knibb (second) denying Kate Curran (third) the chance to make it a British 1-2 as the race headed out onto the bike. Pallant-Browne, who was eighth out of the water moved her way through the field on the bike leg, becoming the only athlete to get within 10 minutes of Knibb’s time across the 90km. She then went quickest on the 21.1km run with a time of 01:18:41 to further close the gap to leader Knibb and claim second place with Canada’s Paula Findlay completing the podium. Langridge crossed the line in sixth with Curran just behind in seventh.  

In the men’s race Joe Skipper was the first Brit across the line in tenth. He was 48th out of the water alongside John Thelwell (49th). Liam Llyod was 22nd while Lewis Donovan was 38th after the first part of the race. On the bike leg Skipper made his way up the standings and kicked on again on the run, setting the sixth fastest time of the race to complete the top-ten. Lloyd crossed the line in 20th with a time of 04:02:17 while Thelwell was 23rd. Donovan ended the race in 28th.
