Add another name to the Kona roster! Mike Wien secured his slot to Kona with a nail biter of a race at Ironman Vineman last weekend. With roughly a mile to the finish, Mike made the pass for 1st place in the M65-69 age group. Only one slot was available for Mike's age group so it was win or no Kona.
Amy D'Anna and Scott Boylan also raced Vineman, finishing 4th in their respective age groups. Luis Alvarez, feeling recovered from him Everest ascent, is back to his racing ways with an Ironman finish at Vineman.
In Poland, at Ironman 70.3 Gdynia, Ann Parthemore took 2nd in the F35-39 age group and punched her ticket to the 2017 70.3 World Champs in Chattanooga, TN.
Emily Kratz took on Noresman, one of, if not the hardest triathlons in the world, and finishing high enough to earn a Black Teeshirt (high honors).
