Helle Frederiksen dominates run to collect Bahrain win

Fourth-place finisher at this year’s Ironman Worlds, GB’s Jodie Swallow came to the desert with victory on her mind. Flying under the radar in the event lead-up, Swallow was always going to be a threat on the middle-distance course. Predictably she rocketed out of the swim in 22:39mins, taking the lead throughout the majority of the 90km bike, until the last few kms when ITU athlete Annable Luxford (AUS) pipped her into T2.
