    "Race morning started off with warm conditions that only intensified as the day progressed. The
    professional men remained in a fairly close pack during the swim with Josh Amberger, Andy
    Potts and Clayton Fettell leading the group, with only seconds separating them. Fettell who was
    first out of T1, had to drop during the bike due to stomach issues. The bike course included a
    challenging ride through Lake Mead National Recreation Area, with varying terrain and extreme
    heat. The pro men stayed in a tight group through the bike, but shortly after the halfway point
    Kienle pushed hard to create a solid lead going into the run. Kienle maintained his lead through
    the run and captured the IRONMAN World Championship 70.3 title. Earlier in the season, he
    placed second at the Frankfurter Sparkasse IRONMAN European Championship. Craig
    Alexander (AUS) and Bevan Docherty (NZL) dueled through the run to secure their second and
    third place finishes," according to the press release by Ironman.
