Naeth sec­ond in Cozumel

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FINISH LINE RACE REPORT -

Af­ter grac­ing the cover of our last is­sue (TMC 14.6), An­gela Naeth rounded out her im­pres­sive sea­son with a run­ner-up fin­ish at Iron­man Cozumel. Naeth was first into T2, but was joined on the run course at the front by Ger­many’s Svenja Thoes. The two would run to­gether for many kilo­me­tres of the marathon be­fore Thoes man­aged to break away and stay clear un­til the fin­ish line. Naeth was just 44 sec­onds be­hind in the end, her sixth full-dis­tance race of the a bril­liant year that in­cluded eighth in Kona.

The men’s race was won by Aus­tria’s Michael Weis, who took the day thanks to a dominant bike that put him roughly 12 min­utes ahead of his com­pe­ti­tion in T2.
