On Sunday April 13, 2014 the historic city of New Orleans welcomed triathletes from around the world to Ironman 70.3 New Orleans.

There were several top pros quite capable of winning the event on their best effort however it was Andy Potts who tried to put his stamp on the race early.

Potts had a lead of just over two minutes after the 1.2-mile swim, but gave it up on the 56-mile bike course when Trevor Wurtele of Canada stormed to the front.

However Potts was not done and he regained the lead on the run course and ran his way to victory.

Ben Hoffman moved into second place and Trevor Wurtele settled for third spot on the podium.

For the pro women it was Haley Chura taking the lead into the first transition with Anna Cleaver just 22 seconds behind her.

Cleaver held the lead as the women entered the final transition and began the 13.1-mile run.

However, the early leaders were unable to sustain the pace.

Lauren Barnett combined a solid bike and run to take the win over a hard-charging Sarah Piampiano who finished second.

Hallie Blunck took third place and was less than two minutes behind the winner.

Age-group athletes in the race had the opportunity to capture one of 40 qualifying spots to the Ironman 70.3 World Championships set to take place in Mont Tremblant, Quebec in the Fall of 2014.
