Starting with a lead, no matter how slight, certainly didn't hurt as the two leaders after day one of the Island House Triathlon took the overall titles.

That said, Ben Kanute certainly used all 11 seconds of his advantage, pipping Terenzo Bozzone in the final sprint event of the three-stage race series. Henri Schoeman rounded out the top three.

It was an impressive two days of racing for Kanute and Bozzone, who represented the long-distance side of the sport over the weekend. Kanute is fresh off a runner-up finish at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship, while Bozzone is coming off his best Kona finish ever after coming sixth on the Big Island last month.

Sebastian Kienle signaled he'll be in great form when he hits Ironman Cozumel next weekend - he finished seventh overall this weekend.

Duffy dominates

Flora Duffy has been a force to be reckoned with ever since the Olympics last year, taking her first ITU world championship and winning the Grand Final last September and dominating the ITU WTS series in 2017. She took yet another Xterra world title last month and continued her winning ways with an impressive sprint triathlon that saw her open up more time on Katie Zaferes, who started the day in second. Holly Lawrence rounded out the top three.
