History was made on the shores of one of WA’s most popular beaches today when Sarah Crowley became the first athlete in history to claim all three Australian Ironman titles in one year.The Queensland athlete sealed the trifecta in Busselton on Sunday afternoon, completing the 3.9km swim, 180.2 km bike ride and 42.2 km run in an impressive time of 08:46:10. To celebrate the phenomenal achievement — which earned her a ticket to Hawaii for the international arm of the event — she laughed and said, “I’m going to the pub”.It was the latest feather in the cap in what has been an exceptional year for Crowley, who also claimed victory in the Ironman Port Macquarie and Ironman Cairns events in May and June respectively. The Busselton race marked her fastest this year, the Queenslander running a 09:06:04 time in Port Macquarie, and 08:59:40 in the Asian-Pacific titles in Cairns. The 39-year-old also finished seventh in the 2022 Ironman World Championships in Noosa. “You can trip on something or throw or who knows, stranger things have happened,” she said. When asked what she had in store next, the professional athlete chuckled saying she was “going to the pub.”As the winner of the 2022 Ironman WA, Crowley earned a ticket to the 2023 World Championships in Hawaii, with runner-up El Visser also earning herself a ticket with a time of 08:50:49.First time Ironman competitor Lotte Wilms from the Netherlands earned herself third place on the podium, crossing the line with a time of 08:52:53. This year, women made up a quarter of the total participants in the event.
