Australia’sÂ Craig Alexander has overcome the theft of his bikes to win the Aviva Ironman 70.3 triathlon in Singapore. Alexander was in the lead bunch out of the water and in to T1. South African,Â James Cunnama made some ground on Alexander with a 2:07:36 bike split (0:2:12 faster than Alexander) and put in a very fast 1:16:02 half marathon but it was not enough to edge out Alexander.
