With the news that the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship is heading to South Africa, is it any surprise that Paul Kaye – the Voice of IRONMAN in Europe – has a smile as wide as the African continent?! You bet he is!
On his first appearance at the IRONMAN World Championships last year, Reece Barclay made the Age-Group podium, collecting the coveted Umeke for finishing in fifth place in the 20-24 category.
That will be a much tougher task to match this time around, in his first year in the 25-29 division.
Joanne Murphy (www.tritalkingsport.co.uk) spoke to Reece ahead of Saturday’s race.
