Race Report: Ironman Melbourne


I had a good build up & finally got on top of my hip injury that I has been bothering me since just before this race last year.

Up to big races I like to sleep in my high altitude tent if it’s possible, as in the past when I have, my performances has been very good. And with Ironman Melbourne being a very important race for me, I was happy to sleep in the tent even thought it did mean that I could not sleep next to Aimee. I hoped that a good result would make up for it.

The last few weeks up to the race I felt that I was in a good shape and looked set for a good result even though the field was well packed with good names!

On race morning I was looking forward to swim, because it was my first race in my new Roka wetsuit, especially because in the week up to the race I had done 400m swim in 4:44min with is a good time for me!

This year the weather was much better for an open water swim than last so that was a good star to the morning. I did have an okay start if we look away from the fact that I lost my Garmin watch after 100m. But I was with the front group out to first bouy (850m) where Luke McKenzice & I got dropped, I was hoping that a few others would also get dropped, but it did not happen that way. The rest of the swim we where on our own, but the front group did not look to fare away. But out of the water I saw we were 4min from the front, but with another chase group just 2mins in front of us. I was a little bit disappointed with my swim time of 49:46 – not the start I was looking for. More >

PRESS RELEASE – March 12th 2014, Melbourne Australia

AJ TRi is thrilled to announce two-time iron-distance champion Jimmy Johnsen will partner with Endura Sports Nutrition.

Endura Sports Nutrition is one of the leaders in sports nutrition globally. With headquarters and production coming out of Queensland, Australia, the partnership just made sense to the now Australian based Dane.

“I wanted to partner with Endura because their products are of a superior quality. I like that they manufacture everything here in Australia which means I know where the products come from, where they are made and I can trust what I am putting into my body.”


Johnsen, at 35 years of age, understands every athlete at the top is looking to find the smallest of advantages and improvements which was the catalyst for his move to Endura.


“I first met Jason from Endura a couple of years ago at a race and have built a great relationship with him and his team since then. Having worked with another nutrition brand for most of my career, I had been hesitant to try out something new. But it’s all about finding any improvement you can.
