Argentinian Eduardo Sturla won his fourth Ironman Brazil today in Florianopolis, while American Amy Marsh took the women’s title, as fellow American Hillary Biscay finished fourth.

First out of the water in the men’s race was age-grouper Rafael Rabeiro. Sturla, however, took the lead halfway through the bike and never looked back, finishing in 8:15:03.

Meanwhile, in the women’s race, Czech Lucie Zelenkova was first out of the water in 49:24, the sixth fastest overall of the day. Biscay was second and Marsh was fourth. Zelenkova held her lead until the 84th mile on the bike when she was overtaken by Marsh, who never looked back, and won by nearly seven minutes.
