A long night for us, it was an even longer one for the top runner in Australia, Michael Wardian (USA) who managed an incredible 70.66Km before he was finally caught by the chase car. Michael placed 11th in the world, with the world’s top performance of 79.90Km coming from Austrian Lemawork Ketema in Niederösterreich (Austria).
