Wellington, Vanhoenacker Favorites At Ironman South Africa

Chrissie Wellington will take to the streets of Port Elizabeth tomorrow for the Spec Savers Ironman South Africa. Raynard Tissink, a Port Elizabeth local, is back to defend the title he won in 2010, but the 2009 winner, Marino Vanhoenacker of Belgium, won’t make it easy.

Pros and age-group athletes turned out this morning (Saturday, April 9), to swim the course a final time and then check their bikes into the transition area.

The Triathlete.com crew is (out-of-their-heads jet-lagged but …) on-location, which means that we survived a lay day in Johannesburg and we’ll be bringing you all of the news and images from Ironman South Africa throughout the weekend. Below are images from today. Photos: Hoy Wow, South Africa!
