Maurice Clavel was the class of the field at Ironman Vichy, taking an impressive win thanks to a dominating bike that saw the German ride well clear of the field, then hand tough on the run to win by almost eight minutes. Great Britain's Colin Norris took second, while Italy's Mattia Ceccarelli rounded out the podium.

Helle Frederiksen followed up her world-championship win in Fyn with an impressive Kona tune-up at Ironman 70.3 Vichy. The Dane finished the swim and then blasted through the bike alongside 2012 Olympic silver medalist Lisa Norden, but then powered away from both Norden and American Jocelyn Mccauley on the run to easily take the win. Mccauley ran herself clear of Norden to take second, with the Swede rounding out the podium.
