I just found some highlights of the race recently published. Those of the swim show how scenic and truly unique this swim course is around the pier of Busselton. It also shows at around 1m40sec into the movie how the waves greeted the swimmers at the end of the jetty
The highlight of the bike shows not much of the bike course, rather the amount of money people are investing in their bikes and how many have already purchased a Specialized Shiv’ time trial / I personally find it rather ugly…. The athlete in the movie, who gives a quick answer on the bike is the incredible Petr Vabrousek from the Czech Republic. The Western Australia Ironman was I believe his 102nd Ironman and he finished 5th…Who says that Ironman is difficult… he certainly does make it sound easy.
As to the run leg, the main message is about who is going to manage the heat. The 48th second of the movie shows how much of furnace that course was. The next shot shows Paul Perret, SunSmart Ambassador, whose task is to spread the gospel around melanoma prevention. We were lucky enough to meet him and his lovely family and spend a few days with them.
It is now recovery time and it is currently happening in…Bali! oh yes!
