The 1,500 athletes who competed in Ironman 70.3 Syracuse on Sunday will be getting a second medal for their efforts, according to organizers. The triathlon handed out a first set of medals after the event before realizing one problem: the skyline was the one of Rochester, N.Y., about 140 km west of Syracuse where the event was held.
