Chris McCormack came on after winning Lava Man to chat about his prospects for making the Aussie Olympic team. Even more exciting, Macca chats about the prospects of two Americans, Lance and Lieto, getting off the bike with the lead in Kona this October, with the two Aussies who have won the last five Ironman World Championship titles – Crowie and Macca- trying to chase them down, along with the Raelert brothers from Germany … could be amazing!
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.
