Ironman African Championships
Rough sea conditions prompted Ironman organisers to shorten the swim to 1.6 Km. After this, athletes faced a tough, windy bike ride before embarking on a run where the wind also played a major factor. The wind got stronger as the day progresses and even the supporters’ gazebos had to be taken down in the late afternoon. But the athletes soldiered on to complete the event in good spirits.
