2018 Standard Bank Ironman 70.3 South Africa

2018 Standard Bank Ironman 70.3 South Africa

South African born triathlon athletes Matt Trautman and Jeanni Seymour clinched their winner’s medals at the annual Standard Bank Ironman 70.3 South Africa at the Orient Beach in East London on Sunday 28 January.

 

Trautman won with a record breaking time of 4:09:53, Seymour won with a record breaking of 4:32:23, and is the first South African woman to win in the history of the event.

 

This event allows both men and women to compete for the ultimate prize of becoming ironman champions respectively, the race kicked off with swimming then move on to bikes from East London to Berlin and back for final showdown.

With the race tightly contested coming into transition two – with just minutes separating the male pro’s – it was set to be a nail-biting finish.  With the Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 South Africa known for its tough run course, it was still anyone’s title to take. Trautman fought to maintain his lead after coming back from a fatal back injury that kept him out of contention last year. 

With the race being tightly contested for third between Vaquera and Cheetham, the rest of the podium seemed set early in the run. Seymour seemed to have secured her first ever Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 South Africa bragging rights. With Pallant coming in second despite her superb run. The PRO female race was certainly one to remember.

Matt Trautman and Jeanni Seymour triumphed in both man and women race respectively to complete a SA affair, it was a dream win for Trautman as this was a bittersweet pill as he was injured last year and could not compete in 2017 race, as for Seymour she became the only woman in history for SA to win the race.

In all the competition was graced with more than 2400 athletes who embarked on one of the world’s toughest sports championship.

This was a successful event as the City enjoyed economic spinoffs from visitors in the fields of hospitality and retail industries as this was an international event.
