2015 ironman Champions Jan Frodeno and Daniela Ryf have won Ironman 70.3 Dubai, the first race of the Nasser Bin Hamad Triple Crown series.
“I started to hurt more, then in the last 40km I wanted to see where my legs were and decided to push a little bit harder. Every time I wanted to slow down I pushed harder, that’s pretty much the tactic. With the wind and the carpet on the floor the run felt quite slow, but I’m really happy.
“I’m 37 years of age and I can still out-sprint the young ones. I’m quite happy with that.”
