PouwerPlay Tripod: Ironman World Championship 2018 women's preview ft. Michelle Duffield (Ep. 05)

PouwerPlay's Rob Pouw is joined by former pro triathlete and current coach Michelle Duffield to preview the 2018 Ironman World Championship women's race.

They talk about her favourite race, session, and memory (2:10), what makes Kona so special and the brutal lessons it taught her while racing it twice (6:35), and breaking down the course from swim (11:39), T1 and bike (15:52), T2 and run (21:31) to finish line feels (26:30).

They then dive into the women's race while discussing the ideal age for endurance athletes and the physiological difference between male and female athletes (30:00), Lucy Charles' potential to end Daniela Ryf's dominance (35:45), and talk the Aussie podium chances and comebacks after becoming a mother (38:40). To finish it off it is podium prediction time (47:30).
