Yesterday we told you about Ironman SA, here are the 1600 swimmers waiting for the starting gun at 7am today. ......
and they're off, for their 3.8km swim which is the first stage of the event.
As there was a bank of clouds over the sea, the sun was not yet up. The pier was thronged with crowds waiting to cheer the competitors on, while the press hovered overhead.
We will post lots more pix of the event on our personal blogs during the coming week.
