The pro female field was also very strong, but there were a few standouts that deserved mentioning. Heather Wurtele of Canada has been racing incredibly well and it was hard to imagine her not standing on the podium when the dust settled.
Just over a month ago Heather won Ironman 70.3 California 2016 in a time of 4:16:17. Wurtele is also a very clutch pro who shines brightest when the stakes are highest.
Magali Tisseyre also of Canada is always a threat on her best effort and much will depend on her current form. Just perhaps there will be two Canadians standing on the podium once the Ironman 70.3 St. George results 2016 are in the books.
Mary Beth Ellis and Meredith Kessler of the USA are both seasoned pros and are formidable opponents when they’re on top of their game.
