Skipperís moves into the lead - canít tell if heís upped the pace or Marc dropped off. The Germans run style looked a bit awkward from the start but that might just be his thing.

Not sure why Cartmel has dropped back wether the other Brit stepped up to make third.

Itís looking good for GB either way Wink

Great run by Joe Skipper, and well done to Lucy Gossage.

I know someone who finished IMUK as a first timer, but it's clear they would've been way outside the cut-off had it been full distance. I'll be very interested to see if they're content to be one & done, or whether they'll seek-out another event to 'validate' their Ironman status.

They have 3/4 IM status...is that not enough?

Hm, I'm sure many will. But if you finish in say 14h, you know you would have made it over 140.6, but finishing in over 16:30, it's obvious you wouldn't have been remotely close to getting that medal & shirt.

possibly, but at the non pointy end, people do fill the time available to them...

Apparently Hamburg have cancelled the swim and put a 6k run in it's place.

I did the ITU in the same place 2 weeks ago, it was a bit manky but obviously gone downhill quite quickly.

I gather Tallinn might also be having problems as well with algae.

Is there a German IMJ going into total meltdown as we speak?!

I guess the issue this year, is the prolonged heatwave across Europe, causing algae build-up. In past years, despite temps well over 30, algae hasn't been an issue.

How's it looking for Outlaw? That's a tiny lake relatively speaking, and water quality was never great in the first place.

i was going for a dip in the Baltic...and although this may not be representative, it was enough to put me off....Tallinn is worth a visit though...

How much of that is algae, and how much is seaweed? Difficult to see the colour of the water in that pic.

Looks like I need to enter ocean-based events if this weather keeps up!

Yes, it is supposed to be a sea swim but quite an enclosed part and as per EJC's photo not that nice, although there is a week to go for that.

Ha, yes, interesting to know if there is a German forum group going into meltdown as they'll have to have duathlon tattoo's Laughing

Although, if it is 6k they are actually doing longer than a full IM!

I'm fairly sure Wales will be alright if you do that one Jorgan Smile
