The first world championship event hosted by Ironman in almost two years featured some stellar racing (not to mention hail and rain) as Lucy Charles Barclay and Gustav Iden took the Ironman 70.3 World Championship titles over the challenging course in St. George, Utah. Canada’s Jackson Laundry (pictured above) had a stellar day to take fifth, while Tamara Jewett was the top Canadian woman with her 13th-place finish.

We look back at the amazing day of racing with these photos from Jordan Bryden. (Yes, the same Jordan Bryden who is the reigning Ultraman world champion!)
