Iron Man 70.3 Cebu

As you can see, Iron Man 2013 was packed!

We had to do a few Mission Impossible type things to get in the hotel. These things… we cannot share. But we did witness the Noy Jopson breakdown.

Noy Jopson seemed like he wasn’t going to finish the triathlon. Something happened to his bike. It looked like he had a problem with the tire.

He was visibly upset. We didn’t think he would push through with the race. At first, he looked defeated, but he collected himself and got a spare from a helpful participant. He fixed his tire and continued on.

Considering that Noy was vying for a good finish, you can understand his frustration.

All in all, it was a fun event.

As usual with events of this magnitude there were lots of celebrities and good fun to be had. Enjoy the pics we handpicked off Instagram.
