"Twe end the days of uncertainty, Ironman South Africa canceled ❌

It was the competition he was preparing and with which the season began.

We are all living a complex situation of making decisions and assuming burdens and the truth that for me, these last few days have been hard for all that this entails.

I had to do the toughest workouts in doubt of whether the competition would take place, but aware that I had to continue with my planning until the last moment.

Finally, the competition, the best and most logical measure according to events, has been suspended. I am unable to compete, with all the preparation done and being super fit. In addition to a very strong investment with no return. But we all know what we are experiencing and we have to assume it.

Much encouragement to everyone and let us fulfill our obligations as citizens.

I have finished with this uncertainty now calmly to see how the situation develops to continue making decisions.

The work done is there and will it be time to remove it?»
