Winner Astrid Stienen
Winner's kiss for Astrid Stienen
Karl Johan Danielsson had a rough day but finally had to slow down on the run. Congrats to a great 3rd place!
As Paul Kaye put it: The Kiwi meat in the Swedish sandwich - Dougal Allan from New Zealand got 2nd at #IMKalmar #IMSweden
Patrik Nilsson had the fastest bike and fastest swim. He said the run wasn't as he supposed it too be. Well... he is 1st Swedish Champion at IRONMAN Kalmar now. Congrats to this young athlete ;)

Mette Moe had her personal best today. "The crowd was all over the freaking course!" Nevertheless she had to pay on the run for the hard bike conditions.
Camilla Lindholm Borg said that it was harder than normal today. As everybody she is totally enthusiastic because of the crazy crowd here in Kalmar.
Happy Astrid Stienen at the press conference. "I wasn't able to slow down because of the crowd."
