The swim start at Condado Lagoon began the race for spots in the Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico results 2016.
The winners of Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico 2015 were Igor Amorelli and Sarah Haskins but only Haskins would be on hand to defend her titles.
Amorelli was the only pro to break the four hour mark with his 2015 winning time of 03:54:56.
Great to See Andrew Starykowicz racing in Puerto Rico. If he’s it top form he could be hard to catch on the bike.

It was a great race between Tim O’Donnell, Leon Griffin, Cameron Dye, for the podium spots in the Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico results 2016.
O’Donell and Dye came out of the water together and there was little to separate them. Romaine Guillaume was in the mix for much of the race but fell off the pace a little on the bike course.
O’Donnell outran the field by a full two minutes and would take first place in the Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico results 2016.
Leon Griffin of Australia edged out Cameron Dye for second place and Guillaume had to settle for fourth.
Six pro men came in under the four hour mark and only Igor Amorelli was able to accomplish the feat in 2015.
