After her victory at Ironman France only 4 weeks ago, Tri Pro Silvia Felt took part in the next big Ironman race in Frankfurt which also was the European Championship.
For all of the 2300 athletes it should a real challenge because of the bad weather conditions – 10°C with rain and strong wind at the start – that made the race extremely hard.
For Silvia the mission was clear: She needed a Top Ten result to get the qualify for the World Championships in Kona done.
After a difficult swim start she found herself in a 16th position and it was clear she had to fight on the bike. On her DA Silvia pushed hard to the Top Ten position, after 5.05 h on the bike she began the run split at rank 10.
She finished after a strong Marathon at 7th position and was happy to say: “Mission accomplished – Kona I am coming.”
