Ironman 70.3 Austin Results 2015

Corrine Abraham and Andrew Starykowicz favored for top podium spots in Ironman 70.3 Austin Results 2015.

There was no telling who was going to win the race as the gun sounded to begin the swim. Although Corrine Abraham and Andrew Starykowicz figured highly, there were several challengers they would both have to fend off.

Starykowicz is one of the fastest Ironman cyclists on the planet and chances were very good that he would begin the run with some sort of lead. However Igor Amorelli, Sam Appleton, Taylor Reid, and Paul Matthews, were all very talented as well and legitimate podium contenders on their best effort.

As the race got underway for the pro men it was a group of nine reaching the end of the 1.2-mile swim course with barely 20 seconds separating them all. Much as expected it was Andrew Starykowicz with the leading pack heading into transition one and the first off his bike and onto the run course.

The only one who managed to stay with Starykowicz was Sam Appleton of Australia and he was only about a minute back of the leader with all the others still out on the bike course. It was over three minutes more before co-favorite Igor Armorelli made his way to the bike/run transition. Taylor Reid of Canada was in the mix as well in fourth place but had an opportunity to battle for a podium spot.

The rest of the field was four minutes or more behind Reid.

It was Sam Appleton of Australia outrunning the field and crossing the finish line in 3:51:16 to claim first place in the Ironman 70.3 Austin results 2015. American Andrew Starykwicz was third and Taylor Reid of Canada rounded out the podium.

At first glance it seemed that Corrine Abraham of Great Britain was the one to beat for top spot among the pro women, but there were several contender who could well win first place in the Ironman 70.3 Austin Results 2015. Lauren Barnett of the USA has continued to improve since she turned pro a couple of years ago and could well make her presence felt in this race. Heather Lendway is a strong swimmer and might be expected to be neat the front of the pack early.

It was Heather Lendway of the USA and Camille Donat of France fighting it out for top honors in the swim with Lendway leading the way by a mere three seconds. Lauren Barnett was a full four minutes off the pace, but as is her style she usually makes it up on the bike course. Barnett posted the fastest bike split with her clocking of 2:30:03.

As the run began Barnett found herself in second place chasing down the leader Lendway. Jeanni Seymour of South Africa was right there in third and Ewa Komander of Poland rounded out the top four.

Jeanni Seymour had solid swim and bike splits and posted the fastest 13.1-mile run time of the day and came out on top of the Ironman 70.3 Austin results 2015 with a winning time of 04:23:48. Lauren Barnett had another excellent performance and finished in second. The third place finisher was pre-race favorite Corinne Abraham.
