PICTURES | SA star triathlete Murray ties the knot

Amid the devasting coronavirus pandemic currently sweeping the globe, star South African triathlete Richard Murray found the time to get married.

Murray, 31, tied the knot with Zimbabwe-born Dutch fellow triathlete Rachel Klamer in the Netherlands on Monday.

Murray placed 17th in the triathlon at the 2012 London Olympics and agonisingly missed out on a medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics when he finished fourth.

Murray, like all his fellow competitors, will have to wait until 2021 to compete at the Tokyo Olympics after this year's Games were on Tuesday postponed for 12 months.

A beaming Murray took to social media to share pictures of his big day.

Congratulations to the Murrays for everyone at Sport24!
