SYRACUSE, New York — The medals awarded to winners in last weekend's Ironman event in Syracuse are engraved with an outline of the Rochester skyline.
The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that the medal's for Sunday's Ironman 70.3 Syracuse feature a scene that depicts an arched suspension bridge over the Genesee River, which runs through downtown Rochester. And the skyscrapers on the medal match those in Rochester.
A spokesman for the Ironman didn't have an immediate explanation for the error on Monday.
The race started with a 1.2-mile swim in Jamesville Reservoir, then a 56-mile bike course that wound through Syracuse's Highland Forest and parts of Onondaga, Madison and Cortland counties. The event ended with 13.1-mile run in and out of Jamesville Beach County Park.
Rochester is 75 miles west of Syracuse.
