Ironman Malaysia 2016 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Compared to the typical times in Malaysia, this year’s race has been pretty fast – an adjustment of -3:37 was still slow, but about 9 minutes faster than Malaysia’s course rating of -12:27. Even though no new course records were posted, a couple of times were not too far off.

Male Race Results

After finishing second at Malaysia in the last two years, Fredrik Croneborg finally won the title in a close race. Second place Thiago Vinyl was just 33 seconds back, while Kaito Thora posted the fastest run to finish in third place.
