When it comes to Dutch Triathletes I have to admit they’re a bit sparse. But you know what I’ll throw my support behind the Belgian Rutger Beke, he speaks the language at least. He’s pretty tall, blonde and rides a bike.
What’s more impressive about this guy, he’s cracked the top five at the Ironman World Championships in Kona Hawaii for the last 4 years running. Unfortunately he’s never won an Ironman race until about 3 hours ago when he crossed the finish line in Tempe with a time of 8:21:16.
