      The first edition of Challenge Venice has been won by Dirk Waijnarda of Nederland who finished the full-distance triathlon’s 3.8-kilometre swim, 180-kilometre cycle and 42-kilometre marathon, in a time of 8 hours 9 minutes and 14 second, 10 minutes and 10 seconds ahead of second-placed Sergio Marques of Portugal, and Malte Bruns of Germany who was third across the line.

      The 6.30 am start from the Island of Venice was a spectacular sight as the 800 athletes dived into the water while there was a huge turnout of spectators along the cycling route which traversed the Provinces of Venice and Treviso, winding its way through the Municipalities of Quarto d’Altino, Marcon, Meolo, Monastier, Musile, San Donà and Roncade before the final marathon in Parco San Giuliano.

      >>> Ironman France

      Belgium’s Tine Deckers earned her fifth Ironman France victory in Nice on Sunday. On the men’s side, Spain’s Victor Del Corral used a strong bike-run combo to edge out South Africa’s James Cunnama for the win.

      Del Corral’s day consisted of a 54:16 swim, a 4:48:04 bike and a 2:42:28 marathon, putting him across the finish line in 8:30:00. Cunnama led a good chunk of the marathon and ultimately finished 35 seconds behind Del Corral at 8:30:35. Germany’s Stefan Schmid rounded out the podium in 8:33:18. 2013 Ironman world champion Frederik Van Lierde finished fourth six weeks after a bike crash that broke his collarbone. The finish guarantees Van Lierde a spot on the Kona start line in October.

      Deckers dominated the women’s race, putting together a 57:36 swim, a 5:05:03 bike and a 3:13:29 marathon to gain earn the victory (she also won in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014). Switzerland’s Emma Bilham was second off of the bike and had a faster marathon, but Deckers’ advantage was too big. Bilham maintained her second place to the finish line, crossing in 9:28:55. 2012 Ironman world champion Leanda Cave (GBR) claimed third in 9:45:06.
