    Radka-Kahlefeldt gets the top spot this time after a runner-up finish last year.

    SUBIC – Radka Kahlefeldt outlasted last year’s champion Caroline Steffen to win her the Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 women’s title on Sunday.

    Kahlefeldt finished in four hours, 22 minutes and 13 seconds, over three minutes ahead of Steffen (4:25:55).

    Dimity Lee Duke of Australia completed the podium with a time of 4:41:57.

    "I knew Caroline is a strong swim, bike, runner. She's an incredible athlete. I just had a good training and preparation," Kahlefeldt said.

    The triathlete from Czech Republic got ahead in the run, a reversal of roles from last year's race where it was Steffen who broke away late.

    This time, Kahlefeldt was ready, outrunning her Swiss counter part by three minutes and 37 seconds in the final third of the race.

    "Basically we knew that the run will decide. Last year it was the opposite scenario where we rode and swam together and Caroline disappeared in the run. This year, it was opposite as I was leading the whole run," Kahlefeldt added.
