The County Fermanagh athlete has been relatively quiet since his 23rd place for Ireland at last year's Olympics.
Knee surgery kept Gavin out of action for a year, however, the Enniskillen man bounced back in emphatic style to win the recent event in Austria.
The race was a gruelling test of endurance which included a 1.9km swim, a 90km bike ride and a 21.1km run.
As well as the first Irishman to win such an event, Gavin also recorded the fastest half Iron-man time ever recorded by an Irish male.
He told UTV: "When you're doing a distance like that you learn a little bit about yourself.
"It is not intense but the mental side takes over and that was a new experience for me.
"I really enjoyed it and maybe in the future I will get the chance to do more races like that."
Gavin's victory comes on the back of two Irish titles and he is hoping to take that success into next year's Commonwealth Games.
He added: "It has been a long year, not being able to do what I want to do.
"Again it was one of those things that happen when you are an endurance athlete, so you have to roll with the punches sometimes and it is better to take a year easy and look forward to the future."
