Brazil — New Zealand triathlete Terenzo Bozzone scored his biggest win of the 2012 season Sunday, taking the top prize at the Ironman 70.3 Brazil. Bozzone, a five-time World Champion who has struggled with lower leg injuries over the past year, proved that he’s back on form. He overcame hot and windy conditions in Sao Paolo to win with a time of 3:52:53.
Bozzone battled two Brazilians, Fabio Carvalho and Igor Amorelli, throughout the race. He swam well in the rough waters off Armacao Beach, then stayed in contention during the bike leg on his Felt DA. He made his winning move on the 21km run, taking the lead facing strong headwinds and winning by 1:08 over Carvalho.
