316 – Powerman Zofingen Duathlon – Deidre Hassett

Deirdre raced at Powerman Zofingen as part of Team Ireland (her home country, though she is based in California). This was a bucket list race for her as swimming is the weakest of her triathlon disciplines and she loves longer races - the hillier and harder the better.

Afterwards her assessment was that Powerman is the most difficult multisport event she has done, mostly due to the combination of the two difficult runs and the climbing on the bike. Stacked on that was the challenge of the bad weather this year. Tougher than Kona? Quite possibly. Despite some poor transitions which cost her second place AG, she was delighted with the execution of her race and her result on the day.
