The Czech Republic’s Filip Ospaly and Germany’s Julia Gajer earned 70.3 wins today in St. Polten, Austria.

Ospaly battled it out with Kona podium finisher Andreas Raelert of Germany. Ospaly’s 1:11:33 half-marathon proved to be the edge he needed to take the win. He crossed the finish line in 3:54:45. Despite a day of very fast splits on the swim, bike and run, Raelert was forced to settle for second in 3:55:24. France’s Cyril Viennot snagged the final podium spot in 3:56:18.

Gajer’s 26:40 swim,  2:31:20 bike and 1:20:22 half-marathon combined to give her the 4:23:14 win. Hungary’s Erika Csomor finished second in 4:24:08, with six-time Ironman world champ Natascha Badmann of Switzerland finishing a close third in 4:24:24.
