SPEC-SAVERS IRONMAN South Africa NELSON MANDELA BAY 14 April 2013
Thinking back to 2012 all the talk was about the torrid conditions creating one of the toughest but most memorable IRONMAN events ever experienced on the African continent and for many, anywhere in the world. This year, in stark contrast, Nelson Mandela Bay blessed athletes with near perfect conditions while spectators enjoyed some scintillating racing as Switzerlands Ronnie Schildknecht took it home in the mens PRO field and USAs Jessie Donavan came up trumps for the ladies. Among a field of close to 1800 athletes were, Ironman 4 the Kidz founders, Garth Wright and Gary Stephenson who teamed up with 65 other charity athletes and participated in bright orange vests in order to raise funds for 13 children beneficiaries that the Charity had earmarked to assist in 2013. Thanks to the support offered by Megapro joined with the athletes determination and our belief that anything is possible, the Trust could once again make a difference for the kids in 2013 2013
