Daniela Reeve celebrates her victory in the Ironman 70.3 race in St. George, Utah (USA).
Second race of the season, second win – Daniela Reeve at her best in St. George, Utah (USA). In the Ironman 70.3, the Solothurn woman shines, as often, especially on the cycling track. After I got out of the water 49 seconds late after swimming 1.9 km, I quickly let everyone stand on the cycling track (90 km) and moved onto the running track (21.1 km) 6:07 minutes ago.
“I took the full risk and gave it all my rights from the start,” says Reeve. “I wasn’t sure if I could keep up with the pace. It was a very difficult cycling course. “
The lead thaws a bit by the time she reaches the finish line, but the 33-year-old takes a 4-minute lead over Jenny Metzler (SA). With her performance, Ryf set a new record of 4:05:47, improving the old one by 18 seconds.
The race bodes well for the Iron Man 70.3 World Championship in September, which will be held at the same location. Ryf’s next mission will be on May 23. In Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA), there is an Iron Man a full distance away in the program. (SME)
