ASIA-PACIFIC IRONMAN CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW
Of all the professional triathletes out there, you can definitely rank Cameron Brown as a seasoned pro. At 40+ years of age, he has consistently ranked high among the best racers and still has the knack for winning. In recent weeks, he has been preparing for the upcoming Asia-Pacific Ironman Championships which will take place in Cairns, Australia. This is what he had to share about his upcoming preparations:
“Well I’m slowly moving into my taper mode as I prepare for the Asia-Pacific Ironman Championships in just over two weeks time in Cairns, Australia on June 12th. My preparation has gone well and I’m looking forward to heading back to Cairns. This years race is boosted by being the Asia Pacific champs so more points for Kona, prize money of US$150,000 and a stellar field of Professionals on the start line.
I’ve enjoyed racing in Cairns each year as I can get in some good training before winter sets in across New Zealand and this year we have had a very warm Autumn in NZ. In 2013 I was 2nd, 1st in 2014 and 2nd again in 2015 so I’m hoping I can be on the podium again this year after such a great race at Ironman New Zealand in March.”
