Saturday October 8 / Men’s Ironman
Fabulous, epic race between the Habs Laidlow, in the lead after the bike and the Norwegians Iden and the star Blummenfeldt.
Sam Laidlow gives everything he has left but only eight kilometers from the finish, he will be unable to cope with the return of the triathlete from Bergen, who will come to seek the world title a few minutes later.
This monstrous podium will be completed by the Olympic champion.
Gustav Iden took the opportunity to sign a new record for the event in 7:40:24, Sam Laidlow finished 1:59 behind, Kristian Blummenfeldt with 2:59;
