Successful Marathon For Normann Stadler
Two times Triathlon Hawaii World Champion Normann Stadler and his Dresdner Kleinwort Triathlon Teammate Jan Raphael succeeded in the popular 26th Dresdner Kleinwort Frankfurt Triathlon.
Being used to swim 3.8 km and ride the bike for another 180 km before entering the marathon track, both athletes made their debut on the single 42.125 km distance.
Cheered by massive crowds, the streets of Frankfurt Normann Stadler had a very good 2:32:14. Allthough finishing the Hawaii Ironman only two weeks ago, Dresdner Kleinwort Teammate Jan Raphael came in with a well respected 2:42:34.
Both Dresdner Kleinwort Triathletes crossed the finish line under the goal set at 2:50h. As a result, Normann Stadler and Jan Raphael collected 13.000 EUR for charity Verein krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V.
Normann Stadler: "I wanted to finish this season with a good result. I owed this one to my fans and the children cancer project Verein krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V. It was a great event and I thank Jo Schindler and his team as well as Dresdner Kleinwort for this opportunity.“
