Several top names, including a couple of triathlon legends, will head to Auckland, New Zealand this Sunday for the Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championships. As a championship-level event, the race will hand out valuable points toward this year’s Ironman World Championship and the Ironman 70.3 World Championships.

With the top two finishers, Jan Frodeno (GER) and Richie Cunningham (AUS)who won 70.3 Pucon last weekendnot on the start list, New Zealand’s own Terenzo Bozzone will wear the number one bib. He’ll take on up-and-coming 70.3 star Tim Reed (AUS), as well as veterans Cameron Brown (NZL) and three-time Ironman world champion Craig Alexander (AUS).

The reigning women’s winner Catriona Morrison (SCO) just announced her retirement from the sport, which means that there will also be a new champion on the women’s side. Last year’s runner-upand 2013 winnerAnnabel Luxford (AUS) will be the one to beat, with Meredith Kessler (USA) as the main contender. Look for New Zealand’s Gina Crawford to also make a run at the podium.
