Anthony Fletcher: Race Report
Ironman Australia 6th time, 8th Ironman overall
It has been a long build up to this years Ironman and as usual race day doesn’t disappoint always throwing something different your way and challenging you and giving you new learnings to take into the next one. Allow me to digress while I take you on the journey just to get to the start line of this one. There were moments where I thought circumstances would mean that I may not make the start line. At the end of the day while we endure a lot and put our families through absence and fitting things in around our training, family is the most important thing and I wouldn’t bat an eyelid to put them first and not start if I had to.
You see out family has had more challenges than most in this campaign. My wife was diagnosed with MS at the end of 2017 with autoimmune lesions in the base of her brain stem which have increasingly seen her afflicted with severe neuropathic pain in her left side, mostly head and arm every few hours. While Helene has been an absolute warrior in facing this pain it has had a large effect on the rest of the household both emotionally and supporting her through this time. It got so severe that we had to leave Mooloolaba the day before the Olympic Distance Triathlon in March and go straight to the ER.
Anthony Fletcher, Shane Hatch, Phillipe Lanoux and Andrew Nash took part in IRONMAN Australia at Port Macquarie. Congrats to all.

A beautiful morning to be social and head south to the Whistle Stop for a coffee and a bit of grub.
This ride was led today by Andrew Nash accompanied by Greg Hockey, Cathy Hockey and Paul Beeby. Special mention to the mechanic Mr Hockey who helped another group and then fixed a flat belonging to Mrs Hockey on the home stretch.
