Update - James Cunnama, May 2018

Back on track

After spending all of April working hard to build my fitness back to where it needs to be to start the season, Sun City Ultra triathlon this past weekend was the first real test of 2018, and the first real test since my inju...

Update - April 2018

A slow start...

As you know, in November I had a small crash off my mountain bike at low speed, but did some serious damage to myself in the process. In short, I fractured my ribs in 9 places which caused a pneumothorax and 5 days in ICU. I am happy t

James Cunnama finished a hard-fought 5th at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI on 14 Oct 2017. 

After a good swim with the front pack, a very solid bike getting off in 5th place, James had to work hard through the marathon to secure his second career top-5 at t...

You know it’s mid-season when a month can go by in the blink of an eye! This update is way overdue, and lots to catch up on, so I’ll try to keep it brief.

In my last update I had planned to do Ironman 70.3 Switzerland and then Ironman Frankfurt and the rest of the year...

The year begins properly. 

Jodie and myself have been hard at training now since Christmas, but it feels like the year is only actually beginning as we ramp up for Ironman Africa Champs in Port Elizabeth on 2 April. 

We both started 2017 with Ironman 70.3 South Africa in...

It is with a heavy heart that I have decided not to toe the start line in East London this weekend. I was looking forward to starting my year with a strong title defence in a home race, but it wasn't meant to be.

 

Last year I started 2014 with a bang, with Jodie an...

November 2014

November has been slightly different this time around - normally in November it is post-Kona R&R time with only very little training and no serious efforts, just some fun events. However, with the addition of Challenge Bahrain to teh calendar on 6 Decemb...

Kona 2014

As I am sure you know, Kona 2014 did not go according to plan for me this year. There are many reasons I I will analyse and deconstruct it all over the coming weeks to ensure we don't have a repeat of it next year. 

 

Basically, I had a bad swim and came out in...
