A champion prevailed while a newcomer made his mark on a misty day in Taupo. Multisporter-turned-triathlete Braden Currie scored arguably the best win of his fledgling triathlon career to win the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain IRONMAN 70.3 Taupo today. Currie, a two-time Coast-to-Coast winner, dominated off the bike to beat a quality international field in the inaugural IRONMAN 70.3 event in Taupo. He held off the well-performed Kiwi Callum Millward and early leader Dylan McNeice to win in 3:51:47.
