A mere seven days after his stellar Ironman New Zealand triumph, Terenzo Bozzone backed up by winning the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Bariloche in Argentina.

The Kiwi came out of the 1.9-kilometer swim in the front group and set the pace early in the 90-kilometer bike leg. While he battled on two wheels with Kennett Petersen and Igor Amorelli, ultimately Bozzone led off the bike onto the half-marathon. On the run, he put on a scorching pace for which his rivals had no answer. His winning time of 3:59:57 was four minutes faster than his closest competitor and the only sub-four hour finish that day.

“Had a great day out there today,” said Bozzone. “Thanks to everyone cheering out there on the course!”

The five-time world champion will attempt to extend his winning streak this weekend as he races Ironman 70.3 Campeche in Mexico.

Meanwhile, Ashleigh Gentle will have her final hit out before the Commonwealth Games at the Mixed Relay Invitational this weekend on the Gold Coast. Gentle was part of the team that won Australia its first Mixed Relay World Championship last year and will also lead the charge for the nation’s first mixed relay crown at the Commonwealth Games.
