Alonso-McKernan, Badmann win Ironman South Africa

Clemente Alonso-McKernan wins Ironman South Africa

Clemente Alonso-McKernan wins Ironman South Africa

The eight edition of the Spec-Savers Ironman South Africa provided a true test of character today as athletes were faced with trying weather conditions. Spain’s Clemente Alonso-McKernan came out on top after a long battle with Andi Boecherer (GER) and Cyril Viennot (FRA) while Natascha Badmann (SUI) completed her comeback by winning at the place where she last won a title.

Things looked ominous in the evening before the event and Sunday morning didn’t give much cause for optimism. Rain and strong winds lashed the Port Elizabeth beachfront as many athletes became anxious about whether there’d be a swim start. Fears were allayed as conditions improved slightly and the swim start went ahead with 1,553 athletes in the mass swim start.
