Tim Reed, Parys Edwards, champions at Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay, Philippines

Australian Tim Reed and British Parys Edwards were the champions for the inaugural Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay in the Philippines. While some of the pre-race favorites such as Caroline Steffen and Craig Alexander didn’t start the race, the others put on a very tight race especially on the men’s side.

The Men’s race

Super swimmer Josh Amberger from Australia led out of the water as expected, he exited the one minute ahead of the pack that included another three Aussies, Tim Reed, Mitch Robins, Tim Green. Luke McKenzie was another thirty seconds back.

On the bike Josh kept on extending his lead as he knew he had Tim and Mitch, two of the best runners in the sport behind him. By the 80km mark he had 3’15” on Tim Reed and Luke McKenzie and another 4 minutes on Mitch Robins.

On the run Josh was able to hold onto his lead until the 6.5km mark, when Tim Reed overtook him and never looked back. The biggest mover of the day was Mitch Robins, who managed to move to second place by the 12k mark. Josh Amberger held onto third holding back Luck McKenzie
