Ironman Mont Tremblant 2019 – Analyzing Results

IMMtTThis post only has preliminary data, it will be updated once full splits and the data from the DNFs are available.

Course Conditions

Based on the preliminary data, the conditions were slightly faster than normal for Mont Tremblant, but not more than maybe two or three minutes.

Both winners, Carrie Lester and Cody Beals, posted new course records, breaking sub-9 and sub-8 for the first time in Mont Tremblant. Carrie also posted a new bike course record (was 4:53 by Mary-Beth Ellis, now 4:48:21), while Cody improved his own run course record (was 2:45 by Chris Leiferman, now 2:42:28). Cody was under his old bike course record of 4:24:28 from last year, but Lionel Sanders was even quicker with a 4:15:13.

Kona Qualifying

Both winners Carrie Lester and Cody Beals had secured their Kona slots in earlier races. Therefore the slots went to the second-place finishers, Sarah True and Lionel Sanders.

The full list of Kona Pro qualifiers can be found here.

Ironman Copenhagen 2019 – Analyzing Results

IMCPHThis post only has preliminary data, it will be updated once full splits and the data from the DNFs are available.

Course Conditions

The current data does not indicate extremely fast conditions, an adjustment of 20:57 is in line with Copenhagens 20:51 course rating.

Nonetheless, Anne Haug delivered a crazy fast time. Her total of 8:31:32 is one of the fastest times ever, only Chrissie Wellington and Daniela Ryf have ever been faster. Of course, this is a new course record and a new German fastest time. Her bike and run splits (4:37:28 and 2:57:26) are also new course records.

Kona Qualifying

Anne was finally able to validate her Automatic slot from finishing on the Kona.

The one female slot that was available in Copenhagen went to third-place finisher Maja Stage Nielsen. (Second place finisher Camilla Pedersen already had a slot from her win at IM Wales.)

The full list of Kona Pro qualifiers can be found here.

Ironman Sweden 2019 – Analyzing Results

IMSweden_LogoCourse Conditions

Conditions in Kalmar have been blazing fast this year (adjustment of 31:04), resulting in a completely new set of course records.

In the swim, Alexander Berggren posted the fastest time of 43:50, but there were six athletes faster than the old record by Clemente Alonso from 2017. The 2017 bike time by Cam Wurf (4:14) is also no longer a course record: Boris Stein posted a 4:03:08 – only Andy Starykowicz has ever ridden a faster time in an Ironman. Denis Chevrot improved the run course record, even if “only” by 12 seconds.

The overall course record was broken as well – in fact we saw the first seven sub-8 finishes ever in Sweden! Boris Stein’s 7:49:14 is now the new course record and also the fastest IM finish in 2019. Mathias Peterson’s 7:52:29 finish in third place is now the fastest Ironman debut (the old record was held by Brent McMahon with a 7:55 at Arizona 2014). He also broke the Danish national record, which was set by Rasmus Henning when he won Challenge Roth 2010 in 7:52:36

Kona Qualifying

The single Kona Pro slot in Kalmar goes to race winner Boris Stein. The full list of Kona Pro qualifiers can be found here.

70.3 World Championships 2019 in Nice, France (Sept 7th and 8th) – Entry List

For now, the list reflects the athletes that have qualified and accepted their slots (minus very few withdrawals already processed). I expect about 50 athletes for each gender once the bib list is released and even fewer actually starting on race day. When information about athletes not racing becomes available, I will cross out the names on this list until the bib list is released by Ironman.

Athletes also qualified for this year’s Kona are marked with “KQ”.

Prize Money

70.3 World Championships have a total prize purse of 250.000 US$, paying 10 deep.
