ButterfieldTyler Butterfield demonstrated tremendous sportsmanship by giving up his third-place finish at the Ironman 70.3 Dubai yesterday.

The Bermuda triathlete crossed the line in third but later agreed to swap positions and take fourth instead after Ruedi Wild, of Switzerland, lodged a complaint after taking a wrong turn near the finish after moving into third.

“I’m happy, great swim/bike,” Butterfield said. “Fastest bike but a little disappointed to not run the way I used to years ago and slip back to fourth.

“Second or third would have been nice after leading. But it was always known Javier would catch us on the run.”
