Kiwi Braden Currie has claimed a third place finish at the Ironman World Championship in Utah. He becomes the first New Zealander to stand on the podium since 2005.
Currie, 35, bettered his previous best finish at the Ironman World Championship when he took fifth place in 2018.
Cameron Brown was the last Kiwi to stand on the podium at an Ironman World Championship event, 17 years ago.
Olympic gold medal winning triathlete Kristian Blummenfelt of Norway took first place, while Canada’s Lionel Sanders completed the podium in second place, just 16 seconds ahead of Currie.
Fellow New Zealander Kyle Smith also impressed in his first appearance at the Ironman World Championship, finishing 11th.
