Kona 2015: Preliminary Swim Analysis

After the swim I did a quick analysis of the data. Here are a few quick points:

  • The swim in Kona is always slow, this year it was maybe just a little bit slower than in the last years. The 2014 adjustment was -4:46, this year’s preliminary adjustment -4:58, 12 seconds slower.
  • In the mens’s race we saw fast swims by Romain Guillaume (58 seconds faster than expected), Ben Hoffman (1:21), Paul Ambrose (1:20), Tim Berkel (1:47).
    But Sebastian Kienle had the best swim relative to expectations, 3 minutes quicker than expected!
  • Slow men’s swims were by Dylan McNeice (even though he won the swim, he was 1:02 slower than expected), Brad Kahlefeldt (1:39), Brent McMahon (1:03),
    Two strong bikers also didn’t really have a good swim: Marino Vanhoenacker (2:37) and Maik Twelsiek (2:09)
  • In the female race there were fast swims by Annabel Luxford (53 seconds faster than expected), Caroline Steffen (47 sec), Dede Griesbauer (46 sec) , Susie Cheetham (3:50) and Liz Lyles (2:25).
  • Similar to Dylan on the men’s side, Jodie Swallow won the swim but was slower than expected (by 1:31). Meredith Kessler (1:05), Haley Chura (2:17) and Amanda Stevens (2:43) also don’t have the swims they were probably looking for.
