Steve Smith, Clive Langley and Karl Wilson competed today, Sunday 26th August, in Ironman 70.3 Maine.
Steve lead home the Bermuda contingent as he finished just inside the 5 hour mark in 4hrs 59 mins 54 secs which put him 48th out of 189 in the 45 – 49 age group. Steve completed the swim in 32 min 08 secs, the bike in 2:29:29 and the run in 1:49:27.
Clive Langley finished just 1 min 40 secs behind Steve in 5:01:36 for 38th place out of 185 in the 40 – 44 age group with splits of 28:09, 2:31:41 and 1:55:23.
Karl Wilson entered the race with an injury knowing that he would struggle on the run. As expected he had a strong swim of 25 mins flat which put him in 2nd place in the 40-44 age group going into the bike. Karl followed that up with a solid 2:27;48 bike but sadly was forced to pull out of the race after just 1km of the run.
