Ryf v Carfrae Battle highlights 70.3 Gdynia Poland

Wednesday 01 August 2018
Daniela Ryf (SUI), a three-time IRONMAN World Champion who dominated the women’s long distance triathlon stage in the recent years, has confirmed she will race Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia on August 5. This will be her first appearance in Poland’s sole IRONMAN 70.3 event.

The Swiss is coming off an outstanding performance at Mainova IRONMAN European Championship in Frankfurt where she won with a new course record. Having dominated the female long distance triathlon recently she is certainly the main candidate to get the win in the challenging Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia.

Yet, she will not be the only IRONMAN legend racing in Poland at the beginning of August as Mirinda ‘Rinny’ Carfrae (AUS) already declared her coming to the Baltic Sea coast several weeks ago, making it a duo of three-time Kona champions racing in Gdynia.

It is a great privilege and we cannot be more excited to have Daniela and Mirinda on our race. They are both great champions and we look forward to a fantastic race on August 5 – says Michal Drelich, race director. – Women’s triathlon cannot get any better than that. I am convinced this will be a great promotion of the sport of triathlon and may encourage more women here in Poland to take on swimming, cycling and running in the nearest future – he adds.

Diana Riesler (GER) and Lisa Hütthaler (AUT) are former female winners at Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia. Ryf and Carfrae will also compete against a bunch of the best Polish athletes as the national championships are held at the race too.

In the men’s field, Nils Frommhold (GER) will try to repeat his Gdynia success from 2015 although he will face a tough pro athlete field led by Timothy O’Donnell (USA). Again, a number of Polish pros are coming to the race too with Lukasz Kalaszczynski, Kacper Adam and Maciej Chmura on top of the list.

Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia will take place on August 5, 2018. Currently, there are 2250 athletes on the starting list of the main competition plus another 1500 registered for the side events. Athletes swim in the Baltic Sea, then take on a challenging, one-loop bike course leading through the picturesque Kashubia region in order to come back to town for the running stage, held on three loops in the city center and along the sea boulevards. Beach finish with a loud cheering crowd is the race’s icing on the cake.

Tuesday 14 Aug 2018 [Triathlon News]

From 80 participants in 1984 the EmbrunMan has grown to become a triathlon apart with mythical status, perhaps as the hardest in the world, even more than that of Lanzarote in the heat wave Canary Islands or Hawaii. Since its inception in 1984 the race date of the 15th of August is held regardless of which day it falls on. The start time of 6am is in complete darkness. The first 20 minutes of the swim is spent trying to follow the lead canoe and the swim markers which have lights attached. more

Eric Lagerstrom (USA), a former ITU athlete who made his IRONMAN 70.3 debut at Oceanside this year looked like a seasoned distance racer in Michigan. The 29-year-old carried a minute and a half lead out of the water and limited the damage inflicted on the bike by the pair of strong cyclists, Andrew Starykowicz (USA) and Igor Amorelli (BRA). Lagerstrom hit the dismount line in second sandwiched between Starykowicz (leader) and Amorelli (third) with a mere 29 seconds separating the trio. more
