Cameron Brown showed the 10-time Ironman New Zealand winner is still in top form, leading fellow Kiwi men Guy Crawford and Kieran Doe to a sweep of the podium at Ironman 70.3 Korea on Jeju Island Sunday. Brown’s 4:03:58 finish topped Crawford by 11 minutes 5 seconds and Doe by 11:58.

Joanna Lawn, the 7-time Ironman Zealand women’s champion, dominated the women’s field, hitting the tape in 4:38:54 with a margin of 29:12 over runner-up Yasuko Miyazaki of Japan and 45 minjutes 9 seconds over 35-39 age grouper Sarah Wheeler of Australia, who was third overall.

Lawn had a month off after a full race calendar. “It was really hard to race today after a month with no real training,” she told “And it’s also actually very hard when you are not racing many girls, mentally it is hard to keep pushing. But this is a beautiful place and course and the bike was amazing -- but that run was pretty brutal.”
