Gemany’s Nina Kraft will return Sunday to defend her title. The favourites that will be out to stop her from doing that will be Australia’s Rebekah Keat (Challenge Copenhagen Iron distance race winner on August 15th), and Americans Hillary Biscay (4th in 2008, Ironman Wisconsin winner 2008), Kelly Williamson (recent Steelhead 70.3 winner), Bree Wee, and Kim Loeffler.
Germany’s Max Longree hopes to repeat his Louisville winning performance of 2008. Portugal’s Sergio Marques was third on that day and will look to better that placement on Sunday. Five-time Ironman winner, Jason Shortis will also be looking to add another title to his collection. Ironman.com will have live coverage (text updates, athlete tracking and video).
