Drama scenes at the European Ironman Championship in Frankfurt!
The American Triathlon Sarah True (37) leans below 900 meters from the goal – dropped by mega-heat of about 39 degrees.
Heat battle requires a prominent sacrifice!
Dramatic process: The truth, as a leader, has a lead of about 7 minutes, but at the end of his power. On the main bridge in the last round, she suddenly starts to twist, she is completely unconscious.
It is a real struggle, but it can hardly look at your environment properly. She will hurl next to the booths that she would probably save.
Then, about 900 meters from the goal, he leans into the hands of the nurses. Three more are coming, take them to the next tent. After a short recovery of his strength, he recovers, defends himself from a nurse – but they must not continue, they must protect the athletes from damage, take them out of the competition. And less than a mile and gold – bitter!
World Champion Patrick Lange, who came in just eleven in a few incidents, more than True: "I know the moments when you're completely empty."
The winner is Skye Moench (USA) at the end. Men have a triple win in Germany. Jan Frodeno wins at 7:56:02 am in front of Sebastian Kienle and Franz Löschke.
Bad luck: Kienle entered the dirt after swimming (3.86 km), had to finish the race with 185.5 km of cycling and 42.195 km of running with a cut at the foot.
Eisenmann Frodeno had a very weak knee after the third European Championship triumph. In the finals in front of the Frankfurt Römer triathlon triumphantly sank to the ground, completely exhausted and barely able to enjoy the sincere winning kiss of his wife Emma.
"It was one of my most beautiful races, but in the end really a tough fight," said Frodeno, who was visibly drawn to the strain after winning Ironman's hot battle in the major metropolis. "I'm happy, but completely exhausted."
