After a hard-fought battle, it was Dylan Magnien (FRA) who claimed victory in a time of 03:50:59. Bart Aernouts (BEL) just missed out, crossing the finish line 29 seconds after. The final podium spot was then tightly fought after by the South African pairing with Weiss getting one up on Trautman by finishing in third, with Trautman in fourth.
 
The professional women’s category saw Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR) edge Tamara Jewett (CAN) by 50 seconds to claim victory in an overall time of 04:17:30.

After crossing the finish line, Pallant-Browne shared, “I had a good swim; I was a bit cautious on the bike and had a solid run. It was great to come out here and compete against these super strong girls. It is actually my first IRONMAN 70.3 race of the season, the last one I did was over six months ago, so it’s been a while. Now I feel like my season has finally started and has kicked off in a good way.”
