Tuesday, August 5, 2014, 18:10




Rudolph Agius of Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club has completed his second Ironman triathlon,  participating in this year’s Frankfurt edition.  The Birkirkara triathlete managed to reduce the finishing time by 45 minutes over his first attempt last year.


Agius swam the 3.8 kilometres two-loop swim in the calm waters of the Langener Waldsee in 57 minutes and 38 seconds.  In the ensuing 180-kilometre bike course, which took the triathletes on a hilly and challenging route through the middle of Frankfurt, he registered a creditable time of 5 hours, 7 minutes and 19 seconds.  However his efforts in the first two segments of the race had their toll in the final 42.2-kilometre marathon. Notwithstanding the run’s flat course Agius could not cover the distance under four hours, clocking 4 hours, 3 minutes and 17 seconds.  He finished the race in 10 hours, 15 minutes and thirty seconds.


Rudolph Agius is sponsored by Attard Bros , Nectar Group and Pedal Power Cannondale.
