Meet Kona Contender Rachel Joyce

British triathlete Rachel Joyce got 2nd in last weekend’s Ironman Melbourne and is sure to be a contender this year in Kona. She has been steadily coming into her own after an amazing 4th in Kona, 5th in Abu Dhabi and now 2nd in Melbourne. Last year’s win in Lanzarote and 2nd in South Africa showed that her 2010 5th place in Kona was her stamping her mark of an improving triathlete with more to come.  She’s recently stepped away from Team Abu Dhabi and is working with coach Matt Dixon at Purple Patch.  Could this be the year that she gets a podium spot at the big dance? With an improvement every year from 6th to 4th, this could very well be the year.
