The athletes in Leipzig did not only have to battle through the 1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run but this time, also with temperatures pushing the mercury beyond 30C. Swiss Side pro-triathlete Christian Otto was first out of the water and battled strong in the bike and run legs, however on this occasion was unable to hold off german Per Bittner, who on this occasion took the win. In the women’s race, it was the local girl Anja Meichsner took the win at her home event. Overall, a fantastic event packed with enthused fans delivering a great atmosphere in Leipzig. Congratulations to all the athletes who took part.
