Igor Amorelli, Ben Collins, and Daniel Fontana were a few of the many threats for podium spots in the Ironman 70.3 Pucon results 2016. However, for the most part the race was fairly wide open and many of the pro men had the potential to win.

As is quite common in a 70.3 Ironman there was a large group of men in the lead pack as they exited the water. It would turn out that five of the first overall finishers would include swimmers from this first group.

As expected, Igor Amorelli posted one of the fastest bike splits of the day. The only time faster was clocked by Benjamin Collins with his time of 2:08:14. However he was just one second faster than Amorelli.

The race was decided in the run. After the bike, the only pro male with a realistic chance of catching Collins was Amorelli. The others simply had too much work to do on the run after being far back on the bike course. Collins posted a run time of 1:20:17 and although it was not the fastest time of the day It was eight minutes faster than Amorelli.

It earned him top spot in the Ironman 70.3 Pucon results 2016 with a winning time of 3:59:02. He was the only pro to break the four hour mark.

For the pro women it looked like defending champion Barbara Riveros would be the one to beat. Rachel Joyce of Great Britain is always a threat to win on her best effort. Valentina Carvallo of Chile also had potential to place well in the Ironman 70.3 Pucon results 2016.
