Ironman Lake Placid 2021 – Analyzing Results

LP LogoRace Conditions & Course Records

There were some changes to the course this year, even so the bike leg was about as slow as in previous years. The swim and run weren’t fast either (even if not quite as slow as in 2019), leading to the slow times that are typical for Lake Placid. There were a few new “fastest times” for Lake Placid: Male winner Rasmus Svenningsson broke the 2019 bike course record and the 2017 overall course record.  Female winner Lisa Norden broke the old bike course record set by second-place finisher Heather Jackson in 2017.

Kona Qualifying

There were six Kona Pro slots on the line in Lake Placid. The result lists show 29 men and 18 women, this would result in 4 slots for the men and 2 for the women. These slots should go to

  • Men: Rasmus Svenningson, Kevin Portmann, Adam Feigh and Matt Russell
    and
  • Women: Lisa Norden and Joanna Ryter

Arnaud Guilloux, Joe Skipper and Heather Jackson were already qualified. You can find the full list of Pros already qualified here.

Olympics & Kona

This post has a look at athletes who have raced at the Olympics and also in the Kona Pro field.

(Note: Some of my data for the earlier Kona Pro races might be incomplete, please let me know if I missed any athletes or additional Kona races for the athletes listed.)

Trivia

Here are a few highlights of the detailed data from the tables below:

  • Jan Frodeno is the only athlete who was able to win the Olympics (Beijing 2008) and Kona (2015, 2016 & 2019). The most successful Olympics&Kona athlete on the women’s side is Michellie Jones (Silver Medal in Sydney 2000 and Kona winner 2006). Michellie and Jan are also the only athletes to podium in both events.
  • Usually, athletes race Kona after the end of their Olympic-distance career – especially in recent years when success at either distance requires focussing on that distance. The biggest exception to this rule is Rob Barel from the Netherlands: He finished fourth in Kona 1984, a full 16 years before racing in Sydney 2000 as a 42-year-old. 
  • So far, only Joanna Zeiger has raced the Olympics and Kona in the same year. Joanna was fourth in August at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, then went on to finish fifth in October in Kona.
  • Joanna Zeiger, Sarah True and Andy Potts are the only US athletes who have raced the Olympics and the Kona Pro race. (You could add Greg Bennett to the list, he was racing for Australia in the Olympics 2004 and for the US in Kona 2012.) Sarah (fourth place in London 2012 and fourth in Kona 2018) slightly edges out Joanna to claim the best combined record among the US athletes.

Tokyo & Kona 2021

I have posted the startlists for the Olympic races (men July 26th, women July 27th) here. (In addition there is the Mixed Relay on July 31st.) Among the 112 athletes on the male and female lists, only Javier Gomez has raced in Kona before. He and Gustav Iden are qualified for Kona 2021, they could race the Olympics and Kona in the same year. Some others might try to qualify after the Olympics, there have been rumors of more Norwegians trying to make it to Kona this year.

2021 Kona Pro Qualifying

At the start of July, the qualifying period for Kona 2021 is coming to an end – and what an unusual period it has been! This post looks at some of the differences to qualifying for Kona 2019 (the last “Ironman World Championships”) and the resulting implications for the Kona 2021 Pro field. In each of the following “mini charts” the data for 2019 qualifying is shown on the left while the 2021 data is shown on the right.

Getting Started

Let’s start with a few straightforward data points.

The most obvious difference is the increased length of the qualifying period. In fact, it’s been more than twice as long:

GettingStarted

A lot of races had to be canceled, and even with the longer qualifying period the overall number of qualifying races has gone down considerably:

NumberRaces

Some fine print: Races that split the male and female Pro fields (such as IM Turku and IM Frankfurt) are counted together as one race. Some of the races are still in the future as I’m writing this post (Lake Placid, Turku/Frankfurt, and Copenhagen/Hamburg) but it seems very unlikely there will be any more cancellations or changes.

The decline in Pro slots has not been quite as pronounced as the decline in races:

RaceQualifiers

This graph only shows “Race Qualifiers”, in addition there are “Automatic Qualifiers” (Kona winners from previous years, the current 70.3 champions and the recent Kona podium finishers). For 2021, there are five female and five male AQs (Anne Haug, Lucy Charles-Barclay, Sarah Crowley, Daniela Ryf, Mirinda Carfrae, Jan Frodeno, Sebastian Kienle, Tim O’Donnell, Gustav Iden and Patrick Lange). 

Of course having smaller reduction in slots than the reduction in races is only possible by giving out more slots in some races, which has especially happened towards the end of the qualifying period. In 2019, only a few bigger races gave out more than 2 slots (one for the men, one for the women). In 2021, except for IM New Zealand all races had at least 4 qualifying slots, Ironman Tulsa was even offering a total of 8 slots.

Regional Distribution of Slots

With the problems due to Covid, Ironman obviously wasn’t able to establish new races in exotic locations. They also weren’t able to have races in South America and South Africa, regions where Covid was making it extra hard to have races:

SlotsSAAF

Ironman also had problems getting clearance for races in Europe:

SlotsEurope

The chart looks a bit less dramatic than things actually are for the European races: 6 of 26 slots for Kona 2021 were assigned even before Kona 2019 (Wales, Italy & Barcelona), well before the pandemic hit in early 2020. The remaining 20 slots are from four races in July and August 2021 (Lanzarote, UK, Turku/Frankfurt, Copenhagen/Hamburg), almost eliminating chances for a local backup race.

The number of slots in Australia & New Zealand has stayed the same (16 slots for 2019 and also 2021), so obviously there were more slots at North American races:

Slots_NA

Regional Distribution of Qualifiers

There is always a good deal of “up and down” in the number of Pro qualifiers from each country from year to year, but there are some noticeable differences for a few countries.

First of all, Australian and New Zealand Pros were able to hold on to most of the slots in their “home races”:

AUSNZ_Home

This is clearly a result of the Covid restrictions as no foreigners were able to start in any of the Oceania 2021 races. All of the 4 foreign athletes who were able to grab slots in Oceania races qualified before the worst of the pandemic (Sarah Piampiano and Alistair Brownlee at Ironman Western Australia 2019, Rach McBride and Judith Corachan at IM New Zealand 2020). In addition to the “home slot qualifiers”, Carrie Lester (Cozumel 2019) and Cam Wurf (Italy 2019) were able to qualify in races and Mirinda Carfrae and Sarah Crowley have Automatic Qualifiers slots, leading to the largest number of Oceania Pros in recent years (10 Australians + 6 New Zealanders, compared to a total of 12 Pros last year).

As noted above, qualifying at home has been quite difficult for European athletes, and it’s no surprise to see two European countries with a sizable reduction in their number of qualified Pros:

Pros_GER

Pros_CH

Both countries could add a few more qualifiers in the remaining races (hence the * next to the 2021 number), but even then they will fall well short of the number of Pro qualifiers in 2019. There will be a few more Germans and Swiss on the startline, with Anne Haug, Jan Frodeno, Sebastian Kienle and Patrick Lange the Germans have four automatic qualifiers, while the Swiss have Daniela Ryf as an AQ.

Interestingly there is one significant increase, the British ladies are almost doubling the number of Race qualifiers:

In addition there will also be Lucy Charles-Barclay as an automatic qualifier, and with a total of ten female Pros the British are likely the biggest nation in the female Pro field. Even with a certain “luck” in picking good races to qualify, this jump mainly comes down to superb performances (e.g. Kat Matthews managed to have two IM wins in Florida and the UK and a 2nd place to Daniela Ryf at IM Tulsa) from a quality group that has gotten bigger with athletes moving up in distance (e.g. Fenella Langridge, Kat Matthews) or from AG racing (e.g. Ruth Astle, Simone Mitchell). The British men have a bit of catching up to do – with Ali Brownlee injured, Joe Skipper could be the only one racing Kona 2021. In 2019, there were also David McNamee – who can still qualify in Frankfurt – and Will Clarke who moved to coaching.)

It’ll be interesting to see which of these trends are just a statistical blip and which are going to continue when racing is hopefully back to (almost) normal for Kona 2022 qualifying!

Kona slots and Prize Money

IM Lake Placid has 2m+2f +2u Pro Kona slot(s). It has a total prize purse of 100.000 US$, paying 10 deep. Based on my understanding of how Ironman assign these 2 extra slots, both will go to the me if they have at least 60% of all Pro starters on race morning. Currently, the male Pros have 41 of 68 Pros on the start list or 60,3% – which would mean a total of 4 slots for the men. But this very close and as there are a lot of names on the list who are unlikely to race, changes are to be expected. It remains to be seen where the slots will finally land, and we may have to wait until race morning for the final numbers to have a clearer picture.

Male Race Participants

The strength of the field is 22% of a typical Kona field.
