Naeth second in Cozumel
After gracing the cover of our last issue (TMC 14.6), Angela Naeth rounded out her impressive season with a runner-up finish at Ironman Cozumel. Naeth was first into T2, but was joined on the run course at the front by Germany’s Svenja Thoes. The two would run together for many kilometres of the marathon before Thoes managed to break away and stay clear until the finish line. Naeth was just 44 seconds behind in the end, her sixth full-distance race of the a brilliant year that included eighth in Kona.
The men’s race was won by Austria’s Michael Weis, who took the day thanks to a dominant bike that put him roughly 12 minutes ahead of his competition in T2.
