Ironman Wales 2011

Tenby a small Welsh seaside town was the perfect setting for the first ever Ironman event in Wales. Set around rural Pembrokeshire and the town centre over 1500 men and women battled some extreme conditions which hammered the Welsh coast from the tail end of an Atlantic Hurricane.

24Sports.TV Herbalife the world leading nutritional company asked athletes from around Europe to trial Herbalife 24 their professional sports nutrition range.

Herbalife24 features 5 products designed to aid athletes with their nutrition 24 hours a day.  

Featured inset is James Davies one of over 700 people that trialled the products.

James a member of the South Wales Police Triathlon team, completed the event and finished in a personal best time with an improvement of 29 minutes.

He completed the course in 14 hours 12 minutes (including transition)

Swim - 2.38 miles / 3.8 km = 1 hour 1 minute

Bike - 112.5 miles / 180 km = 7 hours 18 minutes

Run - 26.3 / 42.1 km = 5 hours 12 minutes

Davies said "Using the Herbaife24 range was a fantastic aid in training and competing in this event, I found the Formula 1 Sport and particularly the Herbalife24 rebuild endurance a massive help. I found my ability to train longer and harder was increased and my recovery after each session was vastly improved. I would recommend the entire product range but especially these two products."

Congratulations to James, the South Wales Tri Team and everyone that competed in this fantastic event.
