Nepean Triathlon retrospective – 1989
Ironman champions and the Nepean triathlon were building a special link, with Louise Bonham taking back to back tiitles.
The mens champ was a young larrikin from Bangor, Sydney. Hot off his 3rd place in the Hawaii Ironman, Greg ‘plucky’ Welch was on the upward swing of his career which took him to multiple world titles and the eventual Hawaii win in 1994.
One of Australia’s most well known and popular triathletes, Greg is still very much of the sport with his media commentary on Ironman events around the world.
