Podium finished for Hywel Davies at ISRAMAN Eilat 2016

Further to our earlier update fron the half distance event from the 2016 Garmin ISRAMAN, Great Britain's Hywel Davies has taken third place in the full iron-distance. Hywel, a previous winner of the Tri247 Athlete of the Month award, is also the coach of Alice Hector who won her second ISRAMAN Half race today.

The race was won by Bart Candel (NED), who retained his title from 2015. His time today of 9:46:16 was less than four minutes outside the course record of 9:42:24 he set last year. Second place went to Czech athlete Petr Vabrousek, the man who makes 15+ iron-distance race per year a standard season. Petr previously won this event in both 2013 and 2014, before finishing third last year.

Hywel will no doubt we back to his marathon training next week, aiming to finally crack the 2:30 mark at the London Marathon, having finished in 2:30:07 last year.
