    There are still 261 athletes out on the swim course. There is still some time left for them. #IMKalmar #IMSweden
    There is a new female leader! German Astrid Stienen took over on the bike course. #IMKalmar #IMSweden
    Nilsson also took over Danielsson and got back his lead. They're close to the aid station in Degerhamn. #IMKalmar #IMSweden
