Bermuda’s Tyler Butterfield is featured in the latest issue of Triathlete Magazine, with the international publication spotlighting his second place showing at the Ironman Cozumel in Mexico last month.

Butterfield podium-worthy performance in Mexico was propelled by a 2:49 marathon, his best Ironman run split to date.

He placed third at the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon in March, scored two Ironman 70.3 podiums [Calgary and Muncie], finished ninth at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship and earned a hard-fought seventh-place finish at the Ironman World Championship in Kona.
