Beals wins Iron­man Chattanooga

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - Finish Line Race Report -

Guelph’s Cody Beals is quickly be­com­ing quite an Iron­man star, tak­ing his debut race at Iron­man Mont-Trem­blant with a cours­ere­cord-set­ting win over Lionel San­ders and then tak­ing his se­cond full-dis­tance race at Iron­man Chattanooga.

Of­fi­cials were forced to can­cel the swim in Chattanooga af­ter tor­ren­tial rains af­fected wa­ter qual­ity. Beals took the win over Mont-Trem­blant third-place fin­isher, Amer­i­can Matt Rus­sell, who passed Es­to­nia’s Kir­ill Kot­segarov in the fi­nal me­tres of the race be­fore head­ing off to the Iron­man World Championship (see p.40) a few weeks later.

The win guar­an­tees Beals a spot at next year’s Iron­man World Championship in Kailua-Kona.
