Australians Pete Jacobs and Belinda Granger took the titles at today’s Ironman 70.3 Philippines triathlon.

Pete Jacobs grabbed his second consecutive Cobra Energy Drink Ironman 70.3 Philippines title with a dominant wire-to-wire victory on a winning time of 3:51:43 at the rain-drenched CamSur Watersports Complex.

Jacobs shot out into the lead in the swim portion of the race, maintained his advantage in the bike portion, then coasted in the run portion to win comfortably over Jesse Thomas (4:12:30). Jacobs credited marriage to helping him perform better in the race.

“I got married recently and I was much more relaxed going into the race. My wife and I had a few days out in the Caramoan beach. So that helped me get into a better frame of mind going into the race,” said Jacobs.

The women’s race was much more bitterly contested. Belinda Granger overtook Amanda Stevens late in the run to post a come-from-behind victory with a winning time of 4:26:23. Stevens clocked 4:28:34 at second.
