This is one of the runners of the Triathlon Challenge in Almere yesterday. A Triathlon is a multiple-stage competition, involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines. In this case it was 4 km swimming in open water, 180 km cycling and 42 km running a marathon. The start was at 7.30 AM.and I made this photo at 4 o'clock PM, this man had almost reached the finish. The weather was terrible, heavy rains and winds so there were many who had given up.
In the back you can see the finish gate, but this man had still to run another round. He is checking his time, you can see the time at the gate 8.16.02, the winner finished in 8.36. Can you imagine doing all this in one day?
When driving home, there were still people running until late in the evening.
