Lucy Gossage (GBR) might have returned to work as an oncology doctor a few days a week earlier this year, but that hasn't seemed to slow her down much - she took her third straight Ironman UK title yesterday, patiently waiting through the bike before taking the lead over the closing stages. Gossage passed Germany's Diana Riesler to lead into T2 and then held off the German on the run to take yet another Ironman UK win.

The men's race was dominated early by France's Romain Guillaume, but he was passed by countryman Cyril Viennot and then would crash and have to pull out. Viennot went on to a dominating bike split, coming into T2 well clear and then cruising through the marathon for the win. There was some excitement for the runner up spot as Will Clark (GBR) managed to pass Kirill Kotsegarov (EST) in the closing stages of the marathon.
