Courtney Atkinson and Caroline Steffen win Ironman 70.3 Philippines 2013

Courtney Atkinson remains unbeaten over the longer distances with his latest win at the Ironman 70.3 Philippines. The former ITU star and Olympian is loving the new experiences and the winning that has been coming with them. He is looking for unique races in great locations. So far he is ticking them off the list. Next up is the MetaMan Bintan iron distance triathlon on September 1st.

Second overall was the three time former race champ and current Ironman world champion Pete Jacobs. Jacobs ran a race fast 1:15:37. Last year’s run times were considerably slower due to differing conditions. Jacobs winning run last year was 1:27:55.

Completing the Australian clean sweep of the podium was David Dellow who’s 1:18:55 was enough to pull away from 4th placed Chris McCormack.

In the women’s race it was Caroline Steffen, the recent Challenge Roth champion, who lead from start to finish with a dominating bike leg.

Second female was USA’s Bree Wee with Belinda Granger once again taking 3rd overall in the women’s race.
