Greg Welch Makes his Mark

By now, Ironman champions and the Nepean triathlon were building a special link. Louise Bonham and Ironman winner took her second Nepean title.

The men’s champ was a young larrikin from Bangor in Sydney, hot off his 3rd place in the Hawaii Ironman. Greg ‘Plucky’ Welch was on the upward swing of his career which eventually took him to multiple world titles and was the first of the Australian’s to win the Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon in 1994. Greg is still very much involved with the sport and often seen in the commentary box for Ironman events around the world.
