Home country favorite Riveros secured her 4th straight Pucon 70.3 women’s victory with a second-best 28:00 swim in Lake Villarrica that left her 3 seconds back of Ellie Salthouse of Australia, a race-best 2:25:10 bike split that tied her with Salthouse at T2, and a by-far women's-best 1:21:58 run that left Salthouse far behind at the line. Riveros finished in 4:18:59 with a 9:10 margin of victory over Salthouse and 22:45 over 3rd-place finisher Valentina Carvallo of Chile.
