The winner in 2015, South Africa-based Brit, Jodie Cunnama, has had to withdraw from Sunday’s IRONMAN South Africa.
With IRONMAN World Champion Daniela Ryf headlining a stellar field of athletes in Port Elizabeth, that is now a battle that we will have to witness later in the season.
Regret to announce my withdrawal from @IMSouthAfrica for health reasons.Will be there with @JamesCunnama cheering on everyone (behind him);)
