Congratulations, Rinny!

By Team yurbuds

We are thrilled to join in the celebration with our Elite Athlete, Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae, after the Ironman World Championship this past weekend. Rinny had the race of a lifetime in Kona; coming into transition in 11th place after the bike, Rinny set a new world championship record in the marathon (2:50:38) to bring home the championship! Finishing with an overall time of 8:52:14, we are proud to call her the Ironman World Champion!

Immediately after crossing the finish line, she jumped into the arms of another member of the yurbuds athlete family – and her fiancée – Tim O’Donnell (who placed 5th overall). We are excited and honored to share in this experience with them both!
