Triathlete Diane Lee recently competed in the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Mallorca triathlon in Alcudia.

Competing alongside a world-class field, Lee was the clear winner in her age group, finished the top UK athlete and also third female overall.

The warm Mediterranean sea was an ideal venue for the 1.9km swim which saw Diane obliterate the field and emerge from the swim with a lead of one minute and 45 seconds.

The difficult bike section came next, over 90km of varied terrain which saw Diane maintain a comfortable position going into the 20km run stage.

Coach Gary McCaffery said: “It was encouraging to see Diane do so well on her debut at this distance.

“To see Diane emerge from the swim with such a clear lead among world-class swimmers was indicative of the training she has put in over the winter. The race was conducted exactly to race plan and the win was well-deserved.”
