TeamTBB athlete Christian Nitschke of Germany took 9th place at yesterdays Ironman 70.3 Haugesund, Norway.
Nitschke exited the swim only 2.5 minutes behind the lead group leaving him spending most of the 90km bike ride on his own. Having worked hard on the bike little was left in the tank for the run but Nitschke still managed to pull out a blistering run of 1.17 to finish off the race in 9th position.
I think everything went in the right direction as it was after all my first race of the year. I look forward to the next races to come.
