It was a rainy day for and some what cooler day for all of the athletes racing the second edition of the Ironman 70.3 race in Augusta, Georgia. Maksym Kriat and Jessica Meyers endured the conditions and field for the 2010 Ironman 70.3 Augusta titles.
It's the second victory this year for Ukrainian Kriat who earlier this year he won the 2010 Ironman 70.3 Mooseman race. Last weekend he was second at the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Syracuse race. He patiently worked his way through the field on the run to take the lead and the win.
Jessica Meyers from Oklahoma edges out pre-race favorites Magali Tisseyre and Desiree Ficker in the victory and get her first Ironman 70.3 title. She's a former Army Captain and a mother of three year-old twins. She's came into T2 with a slight lead and held strong during the run for the win.
