Michael Raelert of Germany, younger brother of Andreas, won the Rohto Ironman 70.3 Oceanside on Saturday March 27 with a time of 3:58:27. He was a man on a mission that day. After winning the 70.3 World Championship in Clearwater last November with a blistering 1:09 half marathon split, he heard the rumblings that yeah, he can run fast, but can he win on a course with a much more challenging bike leg. He came to Oceanside wanting to prove that he was much more than just a great runner.
