Angela Wins Ironman Panama 70.3

Decisive win for the pro triathlete

Angela Naeth started out 2012 in a rather impressive fashion: The Punk Rock Racing athlete took first place this weekend at the Ironman 70.3 Panama race, beating the second-place finisher by more than four minutes.

Sunday's win was Angela's second such victory at the 70.3-mile distance, proving that she's conquered her previous "always a bridesmaid, never a bride" history of taking second place. (For the record, Lance Armstrong took second place in the men's race Sunday, but we're not sure if he asked Angela for any bridesmaid advice.)

Angela finished the swim in 22:56, coming out of the water in 16th place. But 16th was no problem for the cyclist -- in no time at all, she pedaled her way up to second place, finishing the bike portion in 2:26:31.

Then Angela ran a half-marathon in 1:21:44 (that's a pace of 6:14 per mile), for a total finish time of 4:15:31.

Congratulations, Angela. Get used to making those winners' speeches, because we have a feeling you'll be atop the podium many more times.
