Canadians Lionel Sanders and Heather Wurtele best managed the conditions—and the deep competitive field—to take their spots at the top of the podium. In addition to winning a share of the event’s $100,000 prize purse, Sanders and Wurtele secured a place on the starting line of the 2016 Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Queensland, Australia this fall. This was Sanders’ first time winning in St. George, and Wurtele’s fourth overall (twice when it was an Ironman and now twice as a 70.3). Read the complete race recap.
