The United States’ Jesse Thomas and Canada’s Tenille Hoogland earned the wins at Sunday’s Ironman 70.3 Pocono Mountains in Stroudsburg, Penn.

Thomas combined a 21:59 swim, 2:10:32 bike and race-best 1:14:49 half marathon to cross the finish line in first at 3:49:41. American Jordan Jones also had a well-paced day to finish in second more than four minutes later. Germany’s Maik Twelsiek rounded out the podium in third.

Hoogland dominated the swim (21:56) and bike (2:27:59) and turned in a respectable run (1:31:08) to lead wire-to-wire and earn the 4:23:52 victory. American Amber Ferreira finished second, with another American Beth Shutt claiming third.
