Tom Lowe and Rachel Joyce ended up at the top of the Ironman 70.3 Muskoka results 2012.

Tom Lowe over-matched everyone out on the bike course and despite being almost four minutes behind Andrew Russell and Brandon Marsh after the swim had the lead leaving the bike/run transition and posted a 1:17:35 bike split to take the victory.

Andrew Russell posted the fastest run split of the day, but left himself too much to do after falling behind on the bike course and settled for second place four minutes ahead of Brandon Marsh.

In the race for top spot among the age-group athletes, Shannon Kemp of Canada posted the fastest time for age-group women with a 5:05:07 clocking. She had a stiff challenge from Juliane Lacroix also from Canada who was a close second with at time of 5:05:40. Rachel Wigton of the United States crossed the line in third place over-all with a time of 5:07:08.

For the age-group men it was Cameron Goodman of Australia who had a sensational race with a time of 4:11:33 that was so good that he beat all the pros but the top two. I think Cameron might be getting his pro license soon.

His run spit was a blistering 01:16:46 and the only run on the day that was faster was by pro Andrew Russell.

Well done Cameron!

Second place over-all for the male age-groupers was Chris Van Kooten of Canada with a time of 04:34:48. Tommy Ferris, also of Canada, had a clocking of 04:40:36.
