IRONMAN Kalmar - English

    The forth swimmer seems to be a female, the swim cap number 58 has been seen which would be Charisa Wernick from the US. #IMKalmar
    The leaders have another 1,800 km to swim. #IMKalmar
    Right now there are strong headwinds on the swim course - but as soon as athletes have passed the turn the winds will be on their side.
    About 20 people have dropped out of the race already. It really seems to be very rough out there! #IMKalmar
    2157 athletes are in the race. They all fight against the strong winds and partly drift off the swim course. #IMKalmar
    Patrik Nilsson and Karl-Johan Danielsson are in the lead. Another 400m meters to swim for them. #IMKalmar

    The Kalmar sign is passed by all participants at #IMKalmar

    The first 400 meters seem to be the roughtest one on the swim course. As soon as the swimmers are further out the sea gets calmer in Kalmar.
    The leaders have just passed the bridge that marks the entrance on the final part of the swim course. #IMKalmar
    Karl-Johan Danielsson is first out of the water in 52:08. #IMKalmar #IMSweden
    Second follows Patrik Nilsson in 52:11. #IMKAlmar #IMSweden
