CEBU CITY, Philippines — Caroline Steffen of Switzerland is closing in on her sixth title via the Regent Aguila Ironman 70.3 Philippines Cebu as she has taken a two kilometer lead on her opponents.

Steffen came out of the water first and has increased her lead over her foes in the 90-kilometer bike phase of the race.

She is being chased by Australia’s Courtney Gilfillan and Dimity Lee Duke while Laura Wood is at fourth.
