Ironman 70.3 2018 Worlds funding issues rumble on

Back on August 28th I wrote about the problems faced by trying to find the required R200-million (circa $15-million) to repair roads ahead of the 2018 Ironman 70.3 World Championships.

South Africas Herald Live reports that a 2nd chance to approve the funding has been missed and there is still no resolution.

There is history of last minute compromises in races, and even back in 2015 there was a last minute payment of R3.6-million to pay for Police Traffic Officers.

Herald Live has a simple search, and if you want to keep up with the development and history around Ironman South Africa, it's here.
