Dr Katherine Brougham had us all guessing about what sport she is involved in. We were all amazed when she announced not only does she do long distance running, but she has entered and won the UK Ironman and  the French Ironman challenges and was also selected to enter the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii in 2013. A terrific achievement.

The Ironman World Championships held in Hawaii, is a gruelling marathon racing, starting with a mass swim, followed by a cycle race followed by a marathon run - there is a superb website at http://www.ironman.com/triathlon/events/americas/ironman/world-championship/athletes/course.aspx#axzz2ttZFAP00  Well worth a look.
