Canada’s Lionel Sanders and Great Britain’s Holly Lawrence each continued to prove their prowess at the half-iron distance with strong victories at Sunday’s Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant.

Sanders’ day consisted of a 26:17 swim, a 2:02:29 bike and a 1:15:06 half-marathon, putting him across the finish line at 3:47:31 and giving him his second-straight 70.3 Mont-Tremblant victory.

Lawrence, who finished second here last year, earned her victory in dominant fashionposting a 24:08 swim, a 2:15:40 bike (by far the fastest of the field) and a 1:25:05 run to cross the finish line at 4:08:53. Like husband Trevor Canadian Heather Wurtele finished in second, finishing her day in 4:17:08. American Lauren Barnett was third into the finishing chute at 4:22:46.
