There is an Ironman comp on today. I'm not long home from witnessing the Port D. end of it.
The comp was made up of a 3.8km swim somewhere off the coast between here and Cairns. Followed by a 180km ride which meant the riders passed us by twice here at Port being the turnaround for them. Finished with a 42.5km run from somewhere down near Ellis Beach and finishing somewhere around Cairns.
The last rider round the second turnaround and on to the final 70km of the ride was an 81 year old Japanese man O_O ... he didn't look any worse for wear than some over half his age. Pacing himself to finish the ride and go onto the run stage . Mind boggling the amount of riders over 40 years.
