Lori Bowden of Victoria is one of the 22 women profiled Timothy Moore’s Sub Nine: History’s Fastest Ironwomen (independent/CreateSpace) about women who have finished an Ironman race in less than nine hours. By October, 2011, there were 26 women who had accomplished the feat. The first woman to do so was Thea Sybesma of the Netherlands in July of 1991. An Ironman race consists of a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride and then a 42km run. An excerpt appeared in Triathlon Magazine Canada and the book was reviewed in Triathlete magazine.
