Ali Day is on his way to making history, after claiming another victory today in round four of the Nutri-Grain IronMan Series.

No other Ironman in the history of the sport has won every round of the Series, and today’s win places Day in good stead to become the first.

Day was unstoppable, crossing the line more than a minute and a half in front of Burleigh’s Jy Timperley in second and Surfers’ Paradise’s Cory Taylor in third.

Northcliffe contingents Matt Poole, Matt Bevilacqua and youngster Joe Collins rounded out the top six.

Day attributes his dominant performances to mindset, admitting it’s at the core of his success.

“I tried to make the most of those pressure moments to open my lead a little bit and make life a little bit easier,” Day said.

“I tried to drop the gears when I could, and pick them up when I needed to – I’ve done a lot of those Enduro races before a lot in training.

“But it’s all in the mindset, you want to enjoy the moment – I’ve just won four races in row. I’ve never done that before and I don’t know if I ever will again,” he said.

Looking ahead to tomorrow’s The Specialist race, Day’s attention will now be on recovery.

“I’m just going to go home now and switch off. Tomorrow is really an endurance race as well, you’ve got to do four back to back races with not much rest in between and then put it all together in an iron,” Day said.

“Tomorrow I’ve just got to make sure I turn up focused and ready to race. I’ve never done this format before, with the run, so we’ll see how it goes and I’m curious to see how it feels,” he said.

Reflecting on his performances in the Series so far, which sees him undefeated atop of the leaderboard on 80 points, the former Nutri-Grain Ironman Champion said he’s yet to understand the magnitude of what this means.

“It hasn’t really sunk in to be honest, and it probably won’t. It hasn’t even sunk in that I won today, and that I also won three rounds two weeks ago,” Day said.

“I’ll try enjoy it now, but I’ll definitely look back on this in the future, smile and think ‘how good was that’,” he said.

Racing returns tomorrow, and will see competitors go head to head across 4 short sprint races (run, board, swim and ski) before putting it all together for one final iron race.
