Despite the threat of storms all day over 1200 athletes braved the demanding course at the 2nd annual K-Swiss Ironman 70.3 Branson. Last year’s defending men’s champion, Ben Hoffman successfully defended his title while Jessica Myers took the women’s title, the second 70.3 title of her career.
We had a number of friends out there this weekend who put on exceptional performances: Bob Schloegel (1st AG), Leslie Curley (1st AG), Mike Malfer (5th AG),Tim Freeland (5th AG), Jared Kuntz (10th AG), Bill Biehl (19th AG), Josh Taylor (44th AG) and a handful of others who I’m probably missing – congratulations to all of you!
We took on this course last year and we can tell you that it is among the toughest, most scenic, and most rewarding of the domestic 70.3 circuit so if you haven’t had a chance to experience the hills of Branson be sure to put it on the calendar for 2012!
