Milos Kostic has done it again! Milos won his age division of Men's 70-74 at NY in 11:20:56, a time comparable to the win/place times for men 15 years younger. Milos' splits were 0:52 for the swim; 6:02 for the bike; and 4:13 for the run.

The NY Ironman very nearly eliminated the swim portion when a sizeable volume of sewage was accidentally leaked into the Hudson River. The 3.8 km swim went ahead, and Nadia Williamson reports that although competitors exited the water with some sort of black pollution all over their skin, they all seemed happy because the current pushed them to very fast swim times.
