Leinfelden – Actually, the time has come now. October, highlight of the season. But the renewed cancellation of Ironman Hawaii due to corona has plunged many triathletes into a crisis of meaning.

In our “Wednesday Word”, the two-time age group European champion from Tria Echterdingen looks back on her two starts in Hawaii, takes a look at the triathlon scene and says why the Echterdingen women who were once so successful nationwide no longer play a role.
