Ironman Gusto

Days after coming second in New Orleans, Aucklander Terenzo Bozzone this time crossed the finish line first winning the Memorial Hermann Ironman 70.3 Texas in Galveston. Bozzone, 25, stopped just before the finish line and raised his hands in the air. He smiled and soaked in the round of the applause and cheers while flexing his muscles. Then, as if the fans’ gusto gave him another burst of energy after a grueling 70.3 miles of running, biking and swimming, Bozzone took another lap around the end of the race. He high-fived fans and gave hugs at a swift jog. “This is what it’s all about  the fans, the energy, the accomplishment,” Bozzone said. “Oh, it feels really good.”
