Seychelles’ Nick Baldwin, who ruled the first-ever full Ironman last year, returns to Subic this week, aiming for another endurance feat in the Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay presented by Big Boss Cement firing off on June 2.

But though the upcoming 1.9km swim-90km bike-21km run event will be just half of the punishing 3.8km-180km-42km race the last time out, Baldwin still expects a tougher outing given the depth of the competing field in the centerpiece pro division.
