Jeanne is a World Champion

Dominating 70.3 performance ends on the podium

Punk Rock Racing's Jeanne DeBonis raced against some of the best triathletes at this weekend's Ironman World Championship 70.3, and she came out a winner.

Jeanne's 5:01:03 finish earned her the top spot on the podium in her age group, and further proves that she is a fighter -- clearly that broken rib in May hasn't slowed her down.

Sunday's race was also one of redemption for Jeanne, who took 2nd place in 2010. She lost by mere seconds, after serving a four-minute penalty for a strange drafting call.

On Sunday, Jeanne finished the 1.2-mile swim in 29:48, then bicycled for 56 miles at a 19.52 mph pace for 2:52:10. She was in 5th place at that point, but then she set out to run 13.1 miles. Her competitors were no match for a former Olympic Trials marathon qualifier. Jeanne ran hard, then picked up the pace and ran the last three miles at a 5:59 pace, finishing the run in 1:34:17. The second-place finisher was three minutes behind Jeanne.

We are certainly proud of Jeanne, and amazed that she found the energy for a leap across the finish line.
