Sunrise swimmer

Last Sunday at the Ironman South Africa event here in Port Elizabeth I snapped this pic of one of the competitors who got to the start a couple of minutes late. All the other competitors were in the water on the swimming leg already when this guy came strolling by quite casually as he was putting on his goggles.

For more magnificent views of the sky, visit the Skywatch.

  3. It's a long race. Guess he felt like he could make the time up somewhere else.

    Love the reflection and the amber tone, it looks like a movie still.

  10. Who won finally? Was it him? I think he feels quite confident of winning and that's why just lazed it to the start...

  11. Awesome! I thought about competing in an iron man once and that was about as far as it went, just a thought. Maybe one day it will happen.
