Granger and Vanhoenacker Win Ironman Malaysia

Zipp athletes Belinda Granger (AUS) and Marino Vanhoenacker (BEL) dominated the bike leg to win Ironman (R) Malaysia.

Granger rode most of the bike leg in front.  She finished the race with a time of 9:23:33, nearly twelve minutes ahead of her nearest competitor.  This is Granger's third Ironman Malaysia win in a row.

Marino Vanhoenacker posted a bike split of 4:21:01 and a total winning time of 8:22:31.  Defending champion and fellow Zipp sponsored athlete, Luke McKenzie, dropped out of the race with stomach problems.

Congratulations to Belinda and Marino on a great day of racing.  Both are now qualified for Ironman World Championships in Kona.
