Julie Dibens

After dropping out of the Ironman World Championship last October, Dibens announced in March that she had undergone surgery to correct the foot injury that had plagued her since 2004, as well as a knee injury. The surgery is keeping her from running for six months, so she hasn’t been able to get any racing in this season to qualify for Kona, but she hopes to fit in some races before the end of the year and will definitely be ready for Kona 2013.
