Caroline Wostmann is famous for winning the Comrades, Two Oceans, and setting records in ultra distance running. At this year’s Comrades she showed South Africa how to “never give up” when she finished in 2nd place with all physical resources virtually depleted. When her body gave up on her, she did not, and she gained even more respect in the process. Now we have the privilege of sharing the start line with Caroline at this year’s Ironman 70.3 Durban. If you knew what Caroline’s swim splits are, you’d be very, very surprised. For biking we do not need to comment much, because the difference between a good and average ultra tri is mostly determined by a good run. So, if Caroline’s biking is vaguely on par, we could be in for an exciting result. Bring your A-game, because you might get chicked. Again.
