Long video to the 29th Powerman Zofingen


The 29th Powerman Zofingen was a great success again. Who missed the race on the 3rd of September 2017 or who wants to dive into the big emotions once again has now the possibility thanks to the long video from Bruno Schertenleib.

Emma Pooley, the British lady living in Hausen am Albis in the canton Zurich and the Russian Maxim Kuzmin won the 2017 ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Championships. Pooley set a fabulous new record: She won the world championship title for the fourth time in a row. She arrived 27 minutes in front of Miriam Van Reijen (NL), closely followed by Katrin Esefeld (GER). Best Swiss lady in fourth place was Nina Zoller (Chur).

Kuzmin’s win, last year’s fifth, was a surprise for a lot of people. He finished about 85 seconds in front of last year’s winner Seppe Odeyn (Bel). Third place, as last year, went to Søren Bystrup (DEN). Best Swiss athlet became Rolf Wermelinger (Kirchenthurnen/BE) in sixth place. There was no new track record this year.

Over all there where around 1‘300 competitors over the whole Powerman Zofingen weekend which was about one hundred less than in the last two years.
