With 10th Win Heather Fuhr Moves to 2nd on the Women's List of Total Ironman TitlesFrom PCH Sports Marketing's Murphy Reinschreiber:
HEATHER FUHR WINS ANOTHER IRONMAN
THIS TIME IT'S IRONMAN EUROPE!
With her Ironman Europe win on Sunday, Heather Fuhr collected her tenth Ironman championship moving her to second on the all-time list behind Paula Newby-Fraser's 22 Ironman wins. The legendary Erin Baker now holds third position with nine wins.
Ironman Europe played out much differently for Heather than her Ironman California win where she was 16 minutes down from the leader off the bike to win. In Germany, Heather had the second fastest bike split of the day and kept reasonable contact with the leaders. Heather said: "As seems to be the case with most of the races I choose, it was the slowest day here in Germany in many years - quite windy on the bike, rainy and cold." The temperature at race start was reported around 50 degrees.
