On Saturday, October 29, Gunter Keimer managed to tackle his third World Championships over 70.3 (Half-Ironman, 1.9km swim, 90km cycle and 21km run). He qualified for the tournament in June and was one of the best in the world in the M60 to 64 age category.
Atselgift/Utah. Early in the morning we swam at Sand Hollow Park with a water temperature of 17 degrees and an outside temperature of six degrees. So it is necessary to dress very lovingly to have a good tomorrow. After a 39-minute swim, the bike course went through the area around St. George – Snow Canyon.
There was some time to enjoy the beautiful scenery before heading back to the city at 80 kilometers per hour. 90 kilometers and over 1000 meters of altitude required Zeimer 2 hours and 53 minutes, and he was able to work his way through the field. Günter Geimer ran the final half-marathon in two grueling runs, including a golf course and streets lined with thousands of spectators in his age group, very happy and very satisfied to have reached the finish line.
