Tim Van Berkel (AUS) was too strong for the rest of the competition and cruised to a four-minute win at Ironman 70.3 Vietnam, while Hungary's Anna Eberhardt ran away from her competition to take the women's title.

Raelert flat

The men's race turned when two-time Ironman 70.3 world champion Michael Raelert, who was hoping to finish his Asian training camp with another 70.3 win, flatted while in the lead on the bike. Van Berkel would take control of the race and run his way to the title in 3:56:19. Russia's Ivan Kalashnikov took second while New Zealand's Mike Philips rounded out the podium.

Fast run

Eberhardt trailed Australian Dimity Lee Duke onto the run course, but used the women's-fastest run split to dominate the day in 4:34:56. Duke would hang on to second, well ahead of 30-34 age group champ Lyndsey Fraser, who posted the day's third fastest time.
