Finland's Minister for Foreign Affairs Alexander Stubb is now an IronMinister. He finished Ironman Frankfurt with the very respectable time of 10:35:45 on Sunday. Especially considering that he blogged about injuring his back a week before the race, when moving a heavy box. Fortunately a fysiotherapist was able to fix it. Congratulations!
Tiina Boman was the best Finn on Sunday, finishing 5th in pro women with 9:34:23. That's not bad, but not quite fast enough to reach her goal of placing in top 3.
Timo Bracht of Germany was the overall winner with a new amazing course record 7:59:16.
