Triathlon: Bozzone out of Las Vegas Ironman race

New Zealand triathlete Terenzo Bozzone has pulled out of tomorrow's (NZT) Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas due to a sinus infection.

Bozzone said he was unable to breathe properly due to the condition.

"I am desperately disappointed to have to withdraw from this race but I wouldn't have been doing myself any favours, either in the race or long term, to line up with such an incredible line up of pro triathletes knowing I was not going to be able to breathe properly," he said.
