Lyndonville native Scott Bradley recently competed in his second Ironman 70.3 World Championship, which was held at Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, placing 38th in his age group (30-34) out of 186 participants from 34 countries and 223rd overall out of 2,235 participants including 69 professionals.

The 2,166 Age Group participants were the top finishers who qualified from 73 Ironman 70.3 events held around the world over the past year. Over 90,000 people participated in Ironman 70.3 competitions over that time attempting to qualify for the World Championship.

Bradley posted a time of 4:23.47 including 30.30 in the swim, 2:18.49 in the bike and 1:29.11 in the run.

His finish and each of his event times were significant improvements over his performance in the World Champion last year which was held in Henderson Nevada, near Las Vegas.

“I was not pleased with my results, but I was not displeased either,” said Bradley.

Since the World Championship Bradley has applied for and received his Elite Triathlete License (Pro Card). His first race as a professional will be the Ironman Cozumel (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile mile, 26.2 mile run) in November.

Bradley is an Intern Coordinator at Wayne Central School.
