Butterfield finishes fifth
Tyler Butterfield, the Bermuda triathlete, finished an impressive fifth in the Mont Tremblant Ironman 70.3 in Quebec, Canada.
Butterfield enjoyed a strong swim, which is usually his weakest discipline, exiting with water with the leaders in a time of 24min 11sec and after a strong bike was in contention for a podium finish.
The 32-year-old, who finished the bike 2:05:51 and the run in 1:15:49 for an overall time of 3:50:04, was pipped for fourth by Richie Cunningham, of the United States, by two seconds.
Pre-race favourite Lionel Sanders, of Canada, won the race in 3:45:38 with compatriot Taylor Reid in second (3:46:22) and Jesse Thomas third in 3:48:06.
