Jodie Swallow makes it six in a row at Ironman 70.3 South Africa

Matt Trautman dominates men's race as home athletes fill top four positions

Full report to follow shortly, but a quick update here on the results from Buffalo City, East London this morning. As highlighted in our preview, Great Britain's Jodie Swallow was targetting a sixth consecutive win at this race, and she did just that by smashing the field apart by probably her most dominant performance at the event to date. Susie Cheetham was in second place during the early stages of the bike leg, but at the time of writing we don't as yet have confirmation as to whether she finished the event - UPDATE, courtesy of Susie's husband, Rob:

South Africa's Matt Trautman - who won Ironman Wales in 2014 - also defended his victory from 2015, heading a 1/2/3/4 for the home athletes. Will Clarke took sixth in his first race since the middle of 2015, with Mark Threlfall eighth.
