Germany’s Michael Raelert and the United States’ Sarah Haskins were victorious at today’s Ironman 70.3 Miami in Florida.
Raelert combined a 21:23 swim, a 2:01:56 bike and a 1:17:46 half-marathon to claim the victory in 3:43:23. American Andrew Starykowicz was absolutely dominant on the bike—posting a 1:56:11 split—and led off of the bike but was ultimately passed by Raelert, putting him across the finish line in second at 3:45:52. Brazil’s Santiago Ascenco rounded out a closer battle for the final podium spot in 3:48:47.
Haskins led from start to finish in the women’s race, posting the fastest swim and bike splits in the process. Her day consisted of a 22:39 swim, a 2:18:50 bike and a 1:28:43 run, giving her the win in 4:12:57. Great Britain’s Leanda Cave ran her way from fourth off of the bike to second at the finish line in 4:18:32. Austria’s Michaela Herlbauer claimed third in 4:19:41.
