Andreas has won the quintuple iron race in a time 103 hours, 45 minutes. It is still exciting here as Elke continues at a steady pace, running almost two laps to everyone else´s one. Wayne is working hard and running steady laps. I am almost sad that the race will be over soon. I am enjoying the atmosphere and friendliness of the racers and support crews. Michelle should hang on for second place, if she can keep her current pace. Elke´s surge has put the pressure on Wayne and Michelle, and kept the race exciting. Wayne has twelve laps to go, about fifteen miles. I am hoping that he can finish before midnight tonight. It will be a well deserved sleep. These athlete´s are simply unbelievable!
