Ironman 70.3 Mallorca

Andreas Dreitz took home a third Thomas Cook Ironman 70.3 Mallorca win, while German compatriot Laura Philipp took the victory for the women.

The pro field and more than 3,500 age-group athletes in Mallorca this weekend didn’t face the island’s typical style of racing this year. Although the Balearic Islands are famous for weather stability, sunshin, and hot temperatures, the sixth edition of the Thomas Cook Ironman 70.3 Mallorca quickly became a very rainy race.

Ironman 70.3 North American Championships

Over the years, Ironman 70.3 St. George has earned the reputation for anything—and everything—happening on race day. From wicked winds to scorching heat to amazing come-from-behind victories, the 70.3 North American Championship venue often conjures up wild and thrilling conditions for athletes to battle. This year’s event was no exception, as cold rain added an extra challenge to an already difficult event.

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).
