Artistic Ironman Brazil images

Wagner Araújo has captured stunning artistic images at the 2015 Ironman Brazil and here is a selection from this award winning Brazilian photographer. But be careful, you might get magically drawn to enter that race in the future, or simply visit Brazil on a vacation.

Marino Vanhoenacker on the way to the win in Brazil got rid of the competition but not his shadow.

Earlier that day the stunning view for Marino before the swim start.

Stretching and a bit of calmness before the long day.

It is great when you can find a clear and open channel in the water.

Full throttle action for Kyle Buckingham on his Ventum. He ended up in 7th place.

The vistas along the course in Brazil are stunning.

Beauty, passion and determination was found everywhere.

Marino Vanhoenacker had a massive lead after the bike and came home victorious.

No time to enjoy the view. Full focus is required.

Vanhoenacker had given it all.

Complete joy on the face of the women's champion Ariane Monticeli.

Everyone who crosses the line has a different way to celebrate this hard earned achievement.

Yes, almost there.

After the sun goes down many athletes still hunt for that very desired finish.
