Bozzone eyes up next ironman title

Three weeks after finishing 11th in his first World Ironman Championship, Terenzo Bozzone is already focussed on his next goal.
Bozzone leaves for Florida this week, where he will attempt to defend his world half ironman title.
And despite the quick turnaround, Bozzone believes his body is up to it.
After nearly three months in the Northern Hemisphere summer, running in the rain is not Bozzone's idea of a good time.
“Loving being back home, except for the weather,” he says.
“Got a protocol now, if its sunny and not raining I’ll train - if it’s wet and cold I won't.”
Bozzone is already looking forward to returning to sunny Florida, where he'll try to make it back-to-back world half ironman titles come November.
“I want to go there and give it the best shot I can, if I can get back on the podium that would be great,” he says.
“While I say now that my legs are feeling good, you never really know until you’re on that red line for a few hours.”
It was only three weeks ago that Bozzone endured his first World Ironman Championship in the heat and humidity of Kona.
He was the first Kiwi home in eleventh, but the race took it out of him - both physically and mentally.
“I got back from Kona and sort of sat on the couch for ten days and didn’t do anything,” he says.
It is a quick turnaround for Bozzone, with only five weeks between races.
Although at just 24-years-old, the athlete has youth on his side.
“I am a bit younger, I find that I can recover quicker,” he says.
