Spain's Javier Gomez took the lead with about a mile left in the run to defend his title in the Hy-Vee Triathlon Sunday in Des Moines. Emma Moffatt of Australia won the women's race.
Gomez and Moffatt each earned $100,000 for their victories. Though the event's purse was cut from $1.1 million to $500,000 this year, it still offers the biggest prize in the world for Olympic-style distance triathlons.
Gomez, the silver medalist from the London Games, was more than a minute behind the leaders after the cycling portion of the event before catching them in the run. American Hunter Kemper was second, finishing :12 behind Gomez.
Moffatt, who won in Des Moines in 2009 and finished second twice, was 1:26 ahead of runner-up Melissa Hauschildt.
