2009 Subaru Ironman Canada champion Jordan Rapp, whose injury kept him out of last year’s race, looks to reclaim his title on Sunday, August 28th in the 29th Annual Subaru Ironman Canada triathlon. It will not be an easy task, as last year’s champion, Viktor Zyemtsev, would prefer an ending more in his favour.
