Smith & Wells Compete in Ironman World Championships

Louise Wells
Karen Smith and Louise Wells competed in the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice France, along the glittering Cote díAzur.

Wells competing in the Womenís 45 Ė 49 Age Group Division, crossed the line 503rd overall and 46th in the Division clocking a time of 5:43:15.

Wells clocked 38:22 on the Swim, she then clocked 3:16:21 on the Bike Course, before recording a time of 1:41:54 on the Run Course.

Unfortunately Smith did not finish, she completed the Swim in a time of 34:32, Smith would then complete the Bike Course in a time of 3:28:08, but did not complete the Run.

Smith said via Social Media, ďI am pretty disappointing DNF! Only time Iíve ever had a DNF was in Honolulu in 2005 when a car crashed into me. Anyway I was riding the main climb (10k up) here and just after I crested I felt some sharp pains in my inner thigh. Not sure if itís just strained from the climb but it never settled down so I basically coasted to T2. Thankfully it was downhill but I just could not put any pressure on the pedals. Standing up was impossible and my dismount into T2 was challenging as I couldnít bare any weight on it. I didnít dare even try to run so called it a day and hope to recover in time for Kona. Obviously very disappointed but these things happen sometimes. Very grateful to even be here though.Ē
