We have our winners

The response to our competition was overwhelming, it seems there are a lot of eager 'IRONMANNERS' out there!

Congratulations to Kieran Hickman and Lee Hodsell. We look forward to following your progress over the next few months as you put the IRON in IRONMAN with New Zealand's finest beef & lamb.

Kieran is a sheep and beef farmer from Marlborough who is married to Michelle with 3 children. He enjoys the outdoors and keeping fit. He is an advocate for depression and mental health illness within rural New Zealand. He hasn't done Ironman before so is going to give it a good crack and push himself out of his comfort zone. 

Lee is a 26 year old from Southland, she is heavily involved in the agricultural industry and is very mindful of the challenges farmers are facing in the current environment. Lee loves the triathlon scene and is "fizzing" to head up to Taupo to compete in Ironman and meet up with Hannah and Branden.

Congrats Kieran and Lee.
