We hinted that Terenzo Bozzone was on another global tear in a story we posted earlier this week and we were right - the Kiwi took the Ironman 70.3 Bariloche title just a week after a record-setting performance at Ironman New Zealand. 

Igor Amorelli (BRA) led a group of five that included Bozzone, Daniel Fontana (ITA) and Americans Jarrod Shoemaker and TJ Tollakson out of the water. Through the bike Bozzone, Amorelli and American Kenett Peterson were able to ride themselves clear of the field, coming off the bike three minutes up on Tollakson.

Once out on the run course there was no stopping Bozzone, who cruised through the half-marathon run to take the win. Amorelli would take the second spot on the podium, while Peterson hung tough for third.

Kaye solid in all three disciplines

Alicia Kaye was near the front of the race throughout the day and her consistent performance netted her a comfortable win. The American (originally from Canada, Kaye changed citizenship after marrying US Olympian Jarrod Shoemaker) was just three seconds behind swim leader Pamella Oliveira (BRA) out of the water, with the ageless Dede Griesbauer - the American is 47 - just 11 seconds back of the lead at the end of the swim. 

Kaye and Griesbauer were together for much of the ride, but heading into T2 Kaye was able to open up a 30-second lead over her countrywoman, with Oliveira over seven minutes behind. Kaye cruised through the run to take the win, while Oliveira was able to run her way to second. Griesbauer took the final spot on the podium.
