Brits dominate at Ironman Weymouth

The sun shone for the 2,000 athletes taking the plunge in Weymouth Bay for the inaugural Ironman 70.3 and Ironman Weymouth. 


In the men’s Marc Threlfall (GBR) was first out of the water leading Harry Wiltshire and Stuart Hayes (GBR) onto the bike. This trio were not to be separated until they laced up their racing flats and hit the Esplanade for the foot race. 

Threlfall and Wiltshire were joined at the hip for the first 10k of the half marathon, when Hayes made his move on a slightly faltering Threlfall; Wiltshire managed to pull away whilst Threlfall was paying the price, unable to hold the blistering pace he had set early on, which opened the door for Hayes to step up into 2nd place.
