An Army Physio has finished third in her first ever professional IRONMAN triathlon.

Captain Katrina Rye was competing at the event in Stafford and recorded an overall time of 04:29:20.

Her bronze medal also means she has qualified for the World Championships as a professional in Nice in September.

Capt Rye was already scheduled to be part of the event in France, but now she will be taking on the best triathletes in the pro races.

The event in Stafford saw the competitors tackle three different factors in swimming, cycling and running.

Lucy Charles-Barkley took the gold medal, but the military star came in just under seven minutes off the top spot.
