Canadians pros cleaned up in Kona today. Brent McMahon and Angela Naeth won Ironman 70.3 Hawaii. McMahon dusted the field in a blazing fast time of 3:59:35 almost eight minutes ahead of second place finisher and former world champ Craig Alexander. It appears Alexander has been disqualified which puts McMahon almost 20 minutes ahead of Benjamin Williams who moves from third in the rankings to second in 4:18:36. Karl Bordine was officially third in 4:22:08.
While the top women swam and rode pretty close in times, Naeth pulled away on the run to finish in 4:30: 53 while Melanie McQuaid was third just four minutes behind and Magalie Tisseyre was 4th in 4:38:22. Rounding out the Canadian sweep was Karen Thibodeau in 6th in a time of 4:41:22. A race recap by Melanie Mcquaid to follow–stay tuned.
