Ironwoman win still within grasp

DESPITE a seventh placing at the weekend, former Far North Coast surf lifesaver Brodie Moir is still in the mix to take out her maiden Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Ironwoman Series.

Moir, 26, grew up at Lennox Head but now represents North Burleigh on the Gold Coast.

She is second on the overall pointscore.

After four events Moir trails Sydney competitor Naomi Flood by 24 points.

Courtney Hancock is third, 28 points behind Moir, with Maddy Dunn another 52 points back.

Moir shot out to a big lead at the start of the series when she won the first two events at Scarborough in Perth and Newcastle.

Flood overtook her on top of the ladder after she won the Portsea event in Victoria where Moir finished ninth.

Dunn has to be considered a threat from fourth after she took out the Surfers Paradise event at the weekend.

The last two events of the year will be held at Coolum and Noosa Heads on the Sunshine Coast.

A series win would cap a memorable season for Moir after she won the iconic Coolangatta Gold and 2012 Lifesaving World Championship event in Adelaide.

Moir represented Byron Bay Surf Lifesaving Club as a teenager and has been a regular on the Nutri-Grain Series for seven years.
