In the preparation everything ran his way for Swen, so he was top motivated and well adjusted for the hard Ironman on the Mexican Island. He struggled very well through the water and was satisfied with his time. Still after the half of the bike split he noticed stomach problems, which he ignored first. The speed a little bit slowed he lost hardly any time to the leading group. Therefore he sliped into his running shoes and got on the very good 4th place. But 10 kilometers before the finish line he wasn’t able to get further, because of stomach and circulation problems and to set one step forward. Swen asked for medical aid during the race and accepted that this had no sense, although the mind said something different.
Now he is on the way of amelioration to look in the future with optimism.
