IRONMAN 70.3 Timberman
Linsey Corbin (Missoula, Mont.) and Melissa Hauschildt of Australia battled throughout the day at IRONMAN 70.3 Timberman in Gilford, New Hampshire. After coming out of the water together behind the lead pack, Hauschildt quickly moved to the front of the field. Corbin, despite losing three minutes to the leader, still headed out on the run in second place. Hasuchildt then closed the door with the top run split of the field to take first in a time of 4:12:52. Corbin took second place in a time of 4:20:11, and Valentina Carvallo of Chile rounded out the podium in third with a time of 4:25:26.

Chris Leiferman (Fort Collins, Colo.) was the only U.S. elite on the men’s podium on Sunday, taking third place with a time of 3:59:19. Leiferman’s third best run of the field was not enough to match Leon Griffin of Australia, who finished in first with a time of 3:53:46. Griffin’s run overtook the top biker of the day, Brazil’s Igor Amorelli, who finished in second place with a time of 3:56:59.

IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Stevens
After 70 miles of racing, New Zealand’s Terenzo Bozzone and Ben Hoffman (Boulder, Colo.) found themselves in a dead heat of IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Stevens, set at Lake Stevens, Washington, on Sunday. Bozzone outstretched Hoffman in the finishing chute to take first place by one second. Bozzone was in the lead pack out of the swim while Hoffman fell slightly off pace. Throughout the 56-mile bike, Hoffman reeled in Bozzone and the other leaders including Matt Reed (Encinitas, Calif.). Bozzone, Hoffman and Reed left together on the run, which quickly turned into a footrace between Bozzone and Hoffman. Bozzone finally surged ahead of Hoffman to finish first in a time of 3:55:17. Hoffman followed immediately after in second with a time of 3:55:18. Reed took third in a time of 4:00:58.

Melanie McQuaid of Canada led the women out of the water and didn’t look back with the top bike split bringing her into first place in a time of 4:27:08. Erin Spitler (Whitefish, Mont.) posted the fastest run split of the field to secure second place in a time of 4:43:50. Liz Noey (Los Angeles, Calif.) took third place in a time of 4:46:37.
