Saleta Castro was simply too good in the water and on the run, while Michael Weiss mastered the land components of the race as each took the titles at Ironman Maastricht Limburg.

Saleta Castro (ESP) got a bit of a scare from Canadian Brooke Brown, who rode 10 minutes faster, but thanks to considerably faster swim and run splits the Spaniard was able to take Ironman Maastricht Limburg with a decent cushion. Swim leader Kate Comber was able to hang on for the final spot on the podium.

Michael Weiss tralied by over nine minutes out of the water, but once he hit dry land there was no stopping the Austrian as he blasted through the bike (4:31) and run (2:45) to a convincing win over Michael Van Cleven and Bas Diederen.
