T2 TRIATHLETE IM TALK AGE GROUP ATHLETE OF THE MONTH
Congratulations to London-based T2 and Thames Turbo Powerbar athlete, Liz Pinches who was nominated and choosen for IM Talks Age Grouper of the Month (episode 306). IM Talk is an online podcast talkshow about “all things ironman” & has a cult following of triathletes around the world including its native New Zealand.
Liz was nominated for the award following a fantastic start to the season with 3rd place at the Abu Dhabi Triathlon (Short Course) (report here). This followed hip surgery on a hip labral tear that ruled her out of most of 2011 and required a serious rehabilitation programme to get back to racing let alone podium performances.
T2 Coach Tom said “its great that the IM Talk guys have recognized the journey that Liz has made to get back to racing at a high level and the dedication she shows to both her rehabilitation and training on a daily basis.”
