Busselton Ironman – Swim section

I went into the Busselton Ironman this morning. The pro start was at 5:30, so it was an early rise. I was amazed by the sheer scale of the event, and the number of people watching at 5:30am. The bicycle compound had 1360 high tech bicycles in it for example! Here are some shots.

    Fantastic again Dad. You can lend your hand to anything it seems. I love the first one especially. Did Liz race?

    • Thanks Riss – – the first was my favourite. The others were more just documenting what it was like. I don’t think Liz raced.
