Wow. Haug will catch Lucy within 10k if this keeps up.

Running 47s/mile faster. 

Haug thinks she is a Melinda Carfrae........ looking lovely the way she runs. A gift.

The commentary team have finally realised Lucy is struggling.

Its like They aren’t watching the same race as us. 

On another note, they are flogging cairns.

I tipped him for 3rd, but predicted he’d go top 5.

Im pretty sure Hoffman will run him down for 4th.

How did Lange have such a good swim if he was sick..?

More likely he couldn't draft & pulled out.

Agree. There was some footage where the other pros were just hammering past him so he couldn’t hang on.  

Not much footage of the 2 time Olympic champ.

Probably the one the commentators were watching.  

She will be lucky to hold onto 3rd.

I reckon Frodeno could win this! With a new course record which is amazing.

Is wurf in 4th or 5th? The blog is confusing 

5th, and just holding enough pace to hold on to it if nothing changes.

This has been impressive from Frodo.  

Ironman should do a 10% off entries today. Heaps would enter after watching this.

I said after London that Brownlee's race was as good as it gets... I think Frodeno just raced the perfect triathlon.

Maybe AP isn’t right about yet another thing.  

Im shocked.

A friend of mine and I had a bet...... he said Bowlee top 3.... I said he would make top 20. 

At the moment he is in 20th......

I wish they put the camera out on the course. Wurf has less than a minute lead with a bit over a mile to go.

I can’t wait to revisit the brownlee thread. 

Guessing the heat got to him.

And Frodo said it was an easy day compared to most. Lucky it wasn't a hot one.

Watching what they just showed then, Wurf seemed like a kid in awe of Frodo when he was congratulating him, and Frodo looked annoyed that he was talking to him.
