Judith Corachán wins the Embrunman
The Spanish performance has put the finishing touch with the victory of Judith Corachán in the female test.

Deckers who arrived at the T2 with 5 minutes ahead of Corachán could not maintain their advantage and was wasting time with respect to the Catalan until the kilometer 29 of race reached her.
From here Judith left alone to get the victory in a time of 10: 57: 04
