Yvonne van Vlerken finishes 2nd in Kona!
Skinfit athlete Yvonne van Vlerken finished 2nd at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. The entire Skinfit USA team would like to congratulate Yvonne on this outstanding achievement. Yvonne prepared herself for the race in our backyard at Lake Tahoe (CA) and it looks like all the hard work at altitude paid off.
"The 2nd place finish in this world-class field was a lot of hard work. It is definitely the most important result of my career. My Ironman worldrecord earlier this year was a step in the right direction, but you cannot call yourself a complete longdistance triathlete until you have proven yourself in Kona!"
