Reed edges Kienle in Mooloolaba thriller to win 70.3 World Championship

Stunning racing sees Gold and Silver decided in the final few hundred metres as Tim Reed wins first World Championship title on home soil in Australia

Now THAT was a race. What an amazing closing 5km of running and kudos to Tim Reed (AUS) and Sebastian Kienle (GER) for chucking everything but the kitchen sink at each other and attacking / closing gaps repeatedly. They can both walk away from this race knowing they truly left everything out there on the course. Kienle now has two Gold (2012, 2013) and two Silver (2015, 2016) from this championship, while a very happy Tim Reed is now the Ironman 70.3 World Champion - and $45,000 richer.

World Champion previously over the ITU Triathlon, Duathlon and Aquathlon formats, 2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championship Bronze medallist Tim Don was seventh today in what was an exceptionally competitive and close race within the top ten:
