LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (July 24, 2022) – The Adirondack Mountains once again provided a picturesque backdrop for athletes from around the world for the 2022 ViewSPORT IRONMAN Lake Placid North American TriClub Championship triathlon.
The event saw Cody Beals overcome a large deficit in the running portion of the triathlon to take the victory with a finishing time of 8:15:11. Second place finisher, Michael Weiss (AUT), made the finish interesting as he closed the gap to Beals in the final stretch of the 140.6-mile race. With approximately seven miles remaining in the run portion, then-leader, Justin Metzler (USA), began dealing with muscle cramps, proving Beals’ path to the top of the podium eminent.
