College lecturer made of iron

Clair Davies_Ironman

SPORTS and travel lecturer at Pembrokeshire College, Clair Davies, proved her steely determination to succeed recently when she secured second place in her women’s Ironman category with just seven weeks’ notice.

After someone pulled out of one of the council awarded lottery places, Clair found herself with just seven weeks to prepare for this grueling event. This is the second time she has competed in the competition, and her time proves what an exceptional athlete she is.

With a previous time of 12 hours and 4 minutes, Clair was not disappointed to complete the course in a time of 13hrs 13mins given the short notice.

Clair commented: “The crowds in Tenby are so amazing and give you a real buzz.  I get a real kick out of competing and pushing myself to the limit.

“The event is a great opportunity for people of all levels of fitness to take part and also showcases the achievement of women in sport .’’

Also competing was College student John Morris who became Europe’s youngest-ever Ironman competitor at just three days past his 18th birthday.
