Kienle and Cave win 2012 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas
The men chasing were running fast, but not fast enough to make up enough time on Sebastian Kienle of Germany.
Kienle won the men’s 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas in 3:54:35 this past Sunday, September 9, 2012. The recap of the race was probably best put by three-time IRONMAN world champion and the defending champion here, Craig Alexander, who said, “I had a good day. You’re not going to win them all, and the better man won. The stronger man. He had a great bike ride and had a great run – he hardly faded at all.” That’s big praise coming from the defending Ironman World Champion.
Leanda Cave started out the 2012 slow, but she is coming on strong to win the women’s race. Considering the field of women assembled here that Cave beat across the line, it looks she might be ready to go for a strong finish. “There’s still some tough competition in Kona and I’m keeping my eye on the prize,” Cave said, obviously determined to try and move up a step or two on the podium in Kona.
