Dave Clamp

Dave has only half a marathon distance left to go!  He is currently on lap 212 out of 222 and in fine form.  His pace is good and equal or better than the next two competitors so it looks like he will secure 2nd spot later on this morning.

Sergio Cordeiro has overtaken Antal Voneki and is lying 3rd on lap 193.  Voneki is on his 188th lap and is likely to finish 4th later today.

    Been following since the start on the TriTalk thread, amazing willpower to continue and hold on to 2nd place, especially with sergio storming the run

  • Jane M says:

    Morning John, live results are a bit random as usual. Any lap countdown that you can zap out for us Team Clamp Groupies much appreciated.
    BTW, what a brilliant effort from you over the last 11days! You must also be looking forward to a rest now. Great photos too, they really capture the essence of the event and the toll it takes on those who dare to try it.

  • Dave
    Most people would have dropped out with LESS going wrong!
    You have stuck through it, stuck to the task (which is the ‘Hardest Thing’) and will hopefully at about 8am your time (2pm UK time) cross that line for a well earned 2nd in the Decaman World championships!!!

    Proud to be able to say that I know and train with you.
