American Kevin Collington pulled away early on the run and then hung on for the win over Tyler Butterfield (BER) while South African Jeanni Seymour had a solid all-around race to handily take the women's race.

Collington hangs tough

After trailing super-biker Andrew Starykowicz off the bike, Collington and Butterfield separated themselves from the rest of the chase group that included swim-leader Sylvain Sudrie (FRA), Francisco Serrano (MEX) and Cody Beals (CAN). Collington would eventually open up a gap of about 80 seconds on Butterfield, but at the line the difference was just 25 seconds. Mexican fans were thrilled to see Serrano round out the podium in his home country.

Seymour solid all around

As we're used to seeing whenever she races, American Lauren Brandon used the day's fifth-fastest swim to lead the way out of the water, then held that position through the end of the bike. Seymour was just under two-minutes down into T2 and then quickly moved to the lead on the run and never looked back. Liz Lyles (USA) managed to get passed countrywoman Lauren Goss to take second.
