Linsey Corbin was born to compete in triathlons. While she originally made her mark in the world of athletics as a downhill skier, she later moved into the world of track. She studied nutrition and exercise physiology at University of Montana in Missoula, where she discovered her passion for triathlon. And, tomorrow, she’ll race at the Kona Ironman World Championships.
Over the summer, Linsey won her first European Ironman crown at Ironman Austria. This was Linsey’s second Ironman win; her first was in 2010 at Ironman Coeur d’Alene. Although she was unable to complete the Las Vegas 70.3 (she got a flat tire 7 miles into the bike and didn’t have the equipment to make the repairs), she has high expectations for her race at the Ironman World Championship 2012 in Kona, Hawaii, this weekend.
Linsey’s vision is “to transcend the boundaries of [her] sport and represent the importance of a sound mind, body, and diet in achieving dreams.” Let’s all watch at the crux of her efforts and take part in the race action tomorrow, tracking Linsey and other outstanding women athletes on course.
