Entry 1 to the MKLR Hall of Fame is Dionne Whelan
UK Champion and World Championship attendee
Dionne completed IRONMAN UK in Bolton in 2015 and won her age category – UK Age Group Champion
This meant she qualified for World Championships in Kona – Hawaii where despite injury she still completed IM 2 for the year.
From Dionne – “Swim 1:43:56, Bike 7:04:26, Run 3:49:13 total 12:57:21 – Fran’s (local lady who also qualified in a different age cat) excuse was that we didn’t have enough time after Bolton and I’m very happy to use that! The only stat I took any notice of is that I was 602nd lady out of the swim out of a field of 662!!!!”
