Australian triathlon champion Celia Sullohern proved distance running is her specialty, when she claimed victory in the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday.

The 25-year-old from New South Wales slashed five minutes off her personal best, crossing the finish line in two hours, 29 minutes, 28 seconds.

The win lifted her overall position in the 2017 Australian rankings to fourth, just behind well-known marathon duo Lisa Weightman and Jess trengrove followed by Virginia Moloney.

With just three spots available in the women’s marathon at Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Sullohern has a big decision to make – distance runner or triathlete?
