TYR triathletes Andy Potts and Magali Tisseyre celebrated wins on Sunday, June 27th. Potts’ finish at Ironman Coeur d’Alene marked the first full Ironman-distance win for the 70.3 World Champion. Tisseyre’s performance at Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs was her second 70.3 win of the 2010 season.
Coeur d’Alene started off for TYR’s John Flanagan and Potts with a 1-2 exit out of the water. Both racing in the TYR Hurricane Category 5 wetsuit, Flanagan split 45:58 and Potts followed close behind in 46:28. The next competitor was another six minutes back. Potts made up the deficit quickly on the bike and held on to his lead headed into T2. With an impressive 2:42:48 marathon split, he crossed the finish line in 8:24:40.
Tisseyre relied on the same back-end speed she used to win Mooseman 70.3 on June 6th to finish first in 4:23:21. Fifth out of the water in TYR’s Sayonara swimskin and second off the bike, her 1:27:38 half marathon split positioned her at the front to hit the finish line first with a one minute, 36-second margin of victory.
