TIM Reed reigned supreme at Iron­man 70.3 Sun­shine Coast on Au­gust 26, clasp­ing his sec­ond vic­tory in eight days in a promis­ing build-up to the Iron­man World Cham­pi­onship.

The 33-year-old from New South Wales also re-in­forced his affin­ity with the re­gion, having also won the Iron­man 70.3 World Cham­pi­onship on Mooloolaba Es­planade in 2016.

He clocked 3hr42min24sec, to fin­ish 53sec ahead of one of the sport’s icons in Craig Alexan­der, who at 45 is still a force to be reck­oned with.

David Main­war­ing was third, an­other 50sec adrift.

Amid some wet con­di­tions, Reed was among the lead­ers from a lumpy 1.9km swim and amid a nine-strong group which ex­ited the 90km bike leg.

He made his move early in the run leg and it stuck, to fol­low his vic­tory from Iron­man 70.3 Bin­tan in In­done­sia last week.

“These con­di­tions suit me and rac­ing guys Crowy (Alexan­der) and (Tim Van) Berkel ... I find it very mo­ti­vat­ing,” he said.

“I love a rough swim like that ... so that was a lot of fun get­ting through the swell and the bike was pretty tough.

“There were some good rid­ers there.

“Every­one got on the run with pretty tired legs I think and that’s when my run tends to go well, when every­one is tired.” Coast re­sults:
