Nutri-Grain ironwoman, ironman series: North Wollongong like home for Jordan Mercer thanks to Darren and Dean Mercer, Amanda Lulham, Swoop

JORDAN Mercer is one of the most competitive athletes in the Ironwoman series, but today she wants to win even more badly than normal.

The Nutri-Grain Ironwoman and Ironman series hits North Wollongong beach for their third-round races.

The beaches of Wollongong are hallowed ground for her family, the training and racing grounds of two of the sports greats in Jordan’s father Darren and his late brother Dean, who died earlier this year at age 47.

For Jordan, racing at North Wollongong feels like home, as much of her family still live in the area and will be watching her race today.
