Ironman Brasil 2015 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

As usual, the conditions in Brasil were fast, especially on the bike. A bike adjustment of 17:40 leads to a total adjustment of 22:14, a little bit slower than last year, but still a bit quicker than the new course rating of 17:48.

Male Race Results

After the swim Marino had to make up some time to the front, but a monster 4:11 bike ride (the forth fastest ever) gave him a six minute lead into T2. During the run it looked as if Tim O’Donnell would be able to close the gap, but he never got closer than 36 seconds. In the end Marino won by 2 minutes over TO and another minute over Brent McMahon. Igor Amorelli also finished under 8 hours but had to settle for 4th place.

As the winner of the Regional Championships, Marino receives an automatic qualifier slot for Kona. He has stated before that he doesn’t want to return to Kona, but having qualified in May may be a reason to reconsider. (If he declines his slot, it will not roll down.) Tim and Igor should also be safe for a July slot, Brent and Matt Trautmann had a safe slot before the race. Ty Butterfield, Kyle Buckingham and Guilherme Manocchio will need more points for a slot.

Female Race Results

Haley Chura was leading the race in T1 and T2. In addition to her, Liz Lyles, Amanda Stevens, Tine Deckers and Asa Lundstoem were in the lead on the run, but eventually Ariane Monticelli won the race with the first sub-3 women’s marathon of the 2015 season. Liz finished 83 seconds back in second place, Amanda took third another 56 seconds back. Tine finished fourth, Laurel Wassner ran her way to fifth, Haley finished sixth and Asa finished 9th after struggling with stomach issues on the last part of the run.

Ariane receives an automatic qualifier slot, and Liz is now also safe (she had a lot of points after her 7th place in Kona and just needed to validate). Behind these two, Amanda Stevens and Haley Chura are on the bubble. Mareen Hufe and Asa Lundstroem were not able to score enough points to secure a slot but are close. Ashley Clifford is also close but had a frustrating DNF.

    I am thinking that Marino showed his experience and class. “Done with Kona” may have helped, but……….. Female race was a classic.
