Rodolphe von Berg

Rodolphe von Berg emails, “Got my revenge at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, by winning back the title in the 60–64 age group I had lost in 2017, for my ninth World Title. I did a 1,900-meter swim in 28 minutes and 50 seconds, followed by the 90-kilometer bike in 2 hours and 28 minutes, and the 21.1-kilometer run in 1 hour and 33 minutes for a total of 4 hours and 37 minutes. That gave me an 11-minute lead on the second-place finisher. Immense joy in a special weekend where my daughter, Olympia, placed ninth in the 25–29 age group and my son, Rudy, 10th, in the pro race.”
