Jul 28, 2003 — Canadian Heather Fuhr won her fourth Lake Placid Ironman on Sunday. Last year's men's leader, Ryan Bolton from Colorado, lost to Kirill Litovtsenko, a newcomer from Estonia. The top finishers each claimed a $20,000 prize. Lake Placid's Jeff Hunt and Kim Loeffler from Essex Junction, Vermont, were the North Country's top finishers.
