Julie Dibens has a list of accomplishments that would leave many over-achievers content. She is already an Ironman 70.3 World Champion, a two-time Olympic qualifier, and a three-time XTerra World Champion. Yet this TYR athlete shows no signs of complacency. With a full 2010-race lineup, Dibens is as hungry for victory as one who never tasted how sweet it is. The 2009 season proved to be one of the British athlete’s best, highlighted first by a win and new record at the Boulder 5430 Half Ironman. Finishing in 4:10:58, it was her bike leg of 2:12:10 (a bike split record in itself), which solidified her lead and overall victory. Using the momentum to continue on highlighting the season, she captured her third XTerra World Championship title, and headed to the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Clearwater, Florida, with a boost in confidence. From start to finish, Dibens triumphed. A two-time top-ten finisher at the world championships, the day was hers. Blowing away the field on the 56-mile bike distance in a 2:07:25 split, she maintained her distance to cross the finish with the first sub-four hour time in the race’s history (3:59:33). Diben’s historic races come after years of prior success. With a swimming background that includes an All-American honors at Louisiana State University, her athletic ability and determination transitioned over to multisport. In both 2000 and 2004, she qualified to represent Great Britain in the Olympic Games, withdrawing in 2000 due to a knee injury. Since, she has won four Ironman 70.3-distance races. Competing in nearly 100 professional competitions around the world in the past decade, Dibens now trains in Boulder, Colorado, looking to take on the next challenges to add to her resume.
