Wellington’s next race will be at the Quelle Roth Challenge triathlon on July 18. She won both of these races last year and her return at the beginning of June will be highly anticipated. By then, Wellington will not have raced for eight months (since her victory at the Ironman World Championships).

Wellington is currently training in Spain with fellow countrywoman and professional triathlete Catriona Morrison.
