Mammoth's Chris Lieto was turned back in his bid to win the grueling the 140.6-mile Ironman Triathlon World Championship on Saturday in Hawaii.
After leading through much of the bicycle ride, Lieto had opened a 4-minute lead before finishing sixth.
Australia's Chris McCormack rallied with a strong marathon run to win the race.
McCormack, known as Macca, was 11 minutes behind leader Torbjorn Sindballe of Denmark at the end of the 112-mile bicycle ride. But the Australian's fast run moved him to the front at the 15-mile mark of the 26.2-mile run.
