Missoula Girl Wins Ironman Arizona [VIDEO]

Facebook

Local badass, Linsey Corbin, scores a victory at the 2012 Ironman Arizona. When I saw her husband Chris’ announcement on a Facebook post last week, I was very proud to hear of her triumph. After 3 years of scoring 2nd place, she finally brought home the “W.”

According to triathlon.competitor.com

Women’s winner Linsey Corbin, who fought back from eighth place after a disappointing swim, said her work was laid out for her early on.

“I saw that Meredith [Kessler] was in first, and at one point I saw that I was ten minutes down,” Corbin said. “I thought, ‘that’s a long lead!’ But I don’t take no for an answer. The day didn’t start exactly how I wanted, but I never give up.”

Corbin worked her way to first place during the marathon, where she turned in a 3:05:57 performance, finishing five minutes ahead of second-place Kessler.

“I figured I had nothing to lose, so I turned it up!” Corbin laughed.

 

Long time friend of mine and Linsey’s husband, Chris Corbin, produced the following video of her race.
