Toth tackles Lake Stevens Ironman

Chilliwack's Anthony Toth struggled at the Lake Stevens Ironman 70.3, finishing outside of the top 50.

Chilliwack’s Anthony Toth crossed the finish line 54th overall at last weekend’s Ironman 70.3 race in Lake Stevens, WA.

Toth competed in the men’s pro division, finishing the race in 4:43:12.

He tackled the 1.2 mile (1.93 kilometre) swim in 27 minutes and 39 seconds, the 37th fastest time in the field.

But the bike stage proved to be his downfall.

Toth completed 56 miles (90.12 km) in 2:45:36, about 30 minutes behind the fastest cyclist.

He finished with a stronger performance in the 13.1 mile (21.08 km) run stage, clocking in with the 41st fastest time at 1:27.07.

But his overall time was 48 minutes behind race winner Terenzo Bozzone of Hidden Hills, CA.
