We were sad to hear the news that renowned multisport photographer, Michael Rauschendorfer, has died aged 51 following a battle with cancer. His photos have graced the pages of 220 and website for many years, in particular his fantastic images from the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. Our condolences are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
