Fuel Like Lionel did at Ironman Arizona!!

This past weekend Lionel Sanders travelled south to compete in the Ironman Arizona on Sunday, Nov. 15th. We worked with Lionel to tweak and dial in his nutrition for this race following the World Championships in Kona back at the beginning of October. Check out the blog post we wrote about the road leading up to Ironman Arizona here: Lionel's Infinit Fuel Dialled in For Ironman Arizona!

Lionel's nutrition and training regimen proved to be effective as he raced Ironman Arizona in sub 8 hours on his way to his first full-Ironman victory (Lionel won Ironman Florida as well, but the swim portion was cut due to weather).

The face of a champion who gives it his all out on the course. 
Lionel finished the swim portion of the race in 54:04 which placed him in 18th in his division going into the bike. Quick work on the wheels launched him to 3rd amongst the PRO men, completing 112 miles in 4:13:38 at a pace of 26.50mph. Looking to capitalize on the run he pushed a pace of 6:22/mi - the second fastest run of the day. He finished the race in 7:58:22, 2 and a half minutes faster than the second place finisher, fellow Canadian Brent Mcmahon. This was Lionel's first race for the season that would count towards the 2016 Ironman World Championships - we think he's made a GREAT start and are looking forward to fuelling him through the rest of his journey.
