Macel wins Ironman Brazil

McKenzie takes it for the men.

Toronto’s Tereza Macel added Ironman title win number four today with her win at Ironman Brazil.

Today might have been her most impressive win yet, using her run to claim victory. She battled with the USA’s Dede Griesbauer throughout the bike (top split of 4:59:50), they entered T2 together, but the American headed out on the run first. Macel caught back up to Griesbauer and finally shook free of her at the halfway point of the run. She then progressively built a lead that would never be surrendered, finishing in 9:19:13, 6:56 ahead of Griesbauer – who ended up second. Macel swam 47:37, biked 4:59:50, and ran 3:26:36. Fellow Canadian and Team TBB teammate Donna Phelan finished in fifth (9:44:45).

Australia’s Luke McKenzie was virtually untouchable in the men’s race. He set a new course record (8:07:39) on his way to winning his fifth career title – his second this year. He swam 42:27, biked 4:26:50, and ran 2:54:05.
