Joanna Zeiger takes 3rd in First-Ever Ochsner Ironman 70.3 New Orleans
For the women, Zieger passed Amanda Stevens midway through the swim and kept the lead on the bike until the heat got to her. Badmann and Catriona Morrison arrived at T2 in first and second place. Badmann, who hasn’t seriously raced since her crash at the Hawaii Ironman 2007, held on to the lead and crossed first at Jackson Square with a winning time of 4:17:50, followed by Morrison, who came in less than a minute later at 4:18:43. Zeiger took third with a time of 4:22:25.
