Racing inside a massive hydroelectric dam: Ironman 70.3 Iguazu

How about racing inside a massive hydroelectric dam? The Ironman 70.3 foz do Iguazu, Brazil, happened inside the Itaipu hydroelectric dam on the Parana River, located on the border between Brazil and Paraguay. The name “Itaipu” was taken from an isle that existed near the construction site. In the Guaraní language, Itaipu means “the sounding stone”. This is considered the only binational race worldwide and the images are breathtaking:
