Rough weather conditions forced organizers to shorten the swim at the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Edinburgh triathlon, but that didn't slow Emma Pallant (GBR) or Andreas Raelert (GER) down very much as the two powered to take the wins over the challenging course.

Raerlert trailed out of the water, but quickly moved to the front on the challenging bike course and never looked back as he cruised to a convincing win over Italy's Alessandro Degasperi. France's Yvan Jarrige rounded out the podium.

Pallant, the defending world duathlon champion, used her typically strong run to take the women's title over countrywoman Lucy Gossage and American Sarah Wahr.
