Bury Times:

1:00pm Friday 25th July 2014

AMATEUR triathlete Tony Cullen has his sights set on the world championships after finishing second in his age group at Ironman UK in Bolton on Sunday. The 40-year-old freight manager, who trains with running coach Dave Cole at Bury Athletic Club, had already qualified to compete on the world stage in Kona, Hawaii, later this year after smashing his personal best at an Ironman event in Lanzarote in May. But he picked up a calf injury in that race and went into Sunday’s mammoth challenge unsure if he would be able to finish. In the end, the dad of three, of Myrtle Grove, Whitefield, clocked a time of 10hrs 09mins 16secs – two minutes better than his previous best at Ironman UK and only 15 minutes outside his best ever time over the distance, which includes a 2.4mile swim, 112-mile cycle and 26.2-mile run. “You can never be disappointed when you complete an Ironman. You can never predict what you are going to do on the day, so many different things can happen,” said Cullen, who finished the bike ride in front in his 40-44 age group before settling for second place – 27th overall – at the finish line.
