Photo galleries: Ironman 70.3; Life after 80
See a photo gallery of images from Clearwater's Ironman 70.3: German Michael Raelert, competing for just the second time at the Ironman 70.3 distance, won the World Championship in Clearwater on Saturday, shattering the course record by more than six minutes with a time of 3:34:04.
"I didn't expect to be so fast," the 29-year-old triathlete said after winning the 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike and 13.1 mile run. "When I got off the run, I felt a little wobbly. But as the race went on, the better I felt."
