Excellent race for podium spots in Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga Results 2016.
It was a top field of pros who answered the starting gun to begin the point-to-point mostly downstream swim in the Tennessee River.

Ivan Tutukin of Russia was the only pro male to finish the 1.2-mile swim in under 23 minutes. However, he had a pack of 7 chasers who were all within 18 seconds of him when he entered the swim\bike transition area.
Ultimately it was the two stand-outs on the 56-mile bike course who captured the top spots on the podium in the Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga results 2016.
Sebastian Kienle and Sam Appleton were the only ones who managed to break 2:04 on the bike course. There nearest challenger was about five minutes away.
