Ellie Salthouse wins Ironman 70.3 Boulder


In the women's race it was a start-to-finish dominating performance by Ellie Salthouse (AUS). The Aussie was out of the water with the lead pack and then laid down the fastest bike and run splits on the day and was rewarded with the victory by a winning margin of eight and half minutes.

Salthouse's return to the podium makes the win that much sweeter as she has been struggling with a hamstring injury that has prevented her from racing to her full potential for much of the last two years. A healthy Salthouse will likely have an impact at the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship coming up in September in South Africa.
