This looks like a repeat of the last two years, where Coz took advantage of choppy waters to edge out training partner and fellow Bull, Jim Myers, at Ironman Kansas.  In reality, this is Coz asking "Was that you who slapped me in the head?" after he realized that Myers had caught him from the M-Z wave on his way to a stellar 4:59:04 - his first 70.3 below the 5 hour mark.  Jim was just minutes behind veteran Luke Wilson who came in 18th in the division with a time of 4:54:18.  Coz had a PR by a whopping 15 seconds with a 5:10:34 followed by Jimmy the Stylish Montalto at 5:15:26, Mark the Dark Bike Montalto at 5:31:20 and Tony Zink at 5:31:33.  Pat Donnelly took 5th place in his division with a 5:51:05.
