CP Media Wednesday night live 14 JULY 2021

Thanks to SUUNTO NEW ZEALAND for sponsoring this podcast

5:20 Mike Phillips

We talk to Pro Triathlete Mike Phillips. Coming from a background in short course ITU racing Mike transitioned to long-distance triathlon in 2015, he has competed in 29 international Ironman/Challenge 70.3 & full events, finishing on the podium in 23 of them.

Mike competed in his debut IRONMAN in 2017, finishing in the World’s Fastest debut time of 7.52.50. This shifted Mikes’s focus earlier than expected to the IRONMAN World Championships. He followed this up with winning NZ ironman in 2019 and a run course record of 2:40:04.

We look forward to sharing Mike’s story along with insights into his training and racing.

42:51 – Emma Wilson

We catch up with CP athlete Emma Wilson who at just 17 years old convincingly won the women’s two-day Kathmandu Coast to Coast and this year is looking for a new challenge.

That new challenge will come in the form of the Longest Day Coast to Coast and just 3 weeks later New Zealand Ironman!
