Continues to grow in quality and quantity, Trapaniman 113, half iron race which saw the participation of over 200 athletes, including individual and relay race.
The men's race saw off several among the strongest performers of the Tricolor, long distance from campionissimo Daniel Fontana, arrived for the first time in Sicily with still fresh in mind the remembrance of his wonderful success at Ironman Los Cabos.
And was he the great protagonist of the men's trial: first came out of the water, in a decidedly more canonical 1900 metres long, over two rounds with Australian and with a little wave and current and make everything more difficult.
Moreover, conditions are ideal for the italo-Argentine representative of DDS that after the first transition has maintained its advantage even in 2 rounds by bike path 41 k, with the wind it to master and a couple of snags challenging to deal with.
On foot, in three rounds from 7 k, Fontana has checked and arrived triumphantly in the main course of San Vito Lo Capo, between two wings of the crowd, jubilant and large warm, on a day which is pretty cool, with a nice burst of water during the final half marathon.
The Fountain behind the fight for the podium was tough, with three athletes who have allowed the winner to slow down the pace.
Bike Abdulla lost contact, and so in the final 21 k fighting for the podium has been a challenge to two between Paoli and Pedraza: the Argentine/Italian Freezone is strong party, proving that he had rediscovered brilliance and desire to do well, but the Bishop of Forhans Paul managed to sit tight, fit and detach it at the end. At the foot of the podium a weary and satisfied Abdulla.
In the women's race, solo by Martina Dogana: the blue, she registered for the Forhans Team, has kept the head of the race since swimming, continuing to increase its advantage in two later fractions and triumphing with merit alone; on the podium with her are two Sicilian Age Group climbs, Marianna Glue and Dora March.
The race was also valid for the assignment of regional titles: Sicilian specialty samples graduated just Marianna glue and, among men, Gabriele Fotà joint seventh overall.COMPLETE RANKINGS HERE
