The British pros delivered some sterling performances at Ironman Hawaii last weekend despite punishingly hot and windy conditions, with Rachel Joyce taking a commendable third behind Daniel Ryf (SUI) and Jodie Swallow a gutsy fourth.

Another great race for Joyce, who copped a black eye in the swim and revealed afterwards she got dunked a few times but fought back to emerge from Kailua Bay in 56:47mins. A speedy bike (4:56:47) enabled her to stay close to the leader Daniela Ryf (SUI) all the way back from the Hawi turnaround. Once out of T2 she went in hot pursuit of the Swiss athlete, but her 3:06:27 run wasn’t enough to keep Carfrae at bay, and she eventually finished third.
