Ironman Malaysia 2017 – Analyzing Results

IMMalaysia

Race Conditions

Based on the results, this year’s IM Malaysia seemed to have pretty “fast” conditions. But for Malaysia this means that it wasn’t quit as hot as it normally is – and that was caused by rain pouring down on the competitors, not exactly the most comfortable racing conditions!

Still the “less hot” conditions allowed Diana Riesler to post a new overall course record (improving on Belinda Granger’s 2009 time), and Romain Guillaume was able to post the fastest bike and overall times since 2014 when Malaysia became an official Ironman again.

Male Race Results

As is typical for him, Rom Guillaume was part of the leading swim group and then took control of the race on the bike, building a lead of more than ten minutes by T2. In most of his 2017 races he struggled on the run, but in Malaysia he had enough energy for a solid 3:10 marathon, winning by four minutes. Second place went to Jens Petersen-Bach who had the fastest marathon of the day with 3 hours flat. Roman Deisenhofer was third, he was able to have the better marathon after racing most of the bike with Christian Kramer who finished in fourth place.

Female Race Results

Laurel Wassner was first out of the water, but the IM Taiwan winner didn’t have a good day and quickly lost ground. Pre-race favorites and last year’s top finishers Diana Riesler and Mareen Hufe came out of the water within second of each other, but Diana had the better bike legs and slowly pulled away from Mareen and the rest of the field, building a lead of roughly 8 minutes in T2. Mareen wasn’t able to challenge Diana’s lead on the run, and they once again finished 1-2. Diana claimed her fourth IM Malaysia title in a row, while Mareen claimed her seventh runner-up finish in an Ironman. The last spot on the podium went to Manon Genet in her second pro IM race. She was almost run down by Saleta Castro who had the fastest marathon in the female field.

Fastest Times on the IM-distance (Overall & Individual Legs)

TriRating reader Marcin has sent me the following question:

“I was searching for a list of fastest bike splits in long course triathlons and was not able to find anything more current than 2015! I know that a lot of people would be interested in that especially now since Cameron Wurf will try to break 4 hours while winning a race on December 3rd in Ironman Western Australia! Do you possibly have such a list?”

Using my database with Ironman results from 2005 onwards, here is my list of fastest times overall and for each of the individual legs. (This means that some older results are not included, for the “definitive lists” of sub-8 for the men and sub-9 finishes for the women, check out Tri247.com.) I am also not including results from races with courses that have been acknowledged as short, for example because of construction the bike course in this year’s IM Frankfurt was short by somewhere between 3 and 5k.

Winning Odds

Male Race Participants

Sebastian Kienle has changed his season plan a bit, this year he’ll be trying to do an early validation of his Kona slot and of course he is the clear favorite for Cozumel. Of course there will be a slight question mark how fresh he is going to be just six weeks after Kona, but that applies to most of his competition as well.

  • Sebastian Kienle: 79% (1-1)
  • Michael Weiss: 7% (12-1)
  • Ivan Rana: 6% (17-1)
  • Stefan Schmid: 3% (30-1)

Female Race Participants

The female race also features a number of athletes that have raced Kona, but Michelle, Anja, and Sonja haven’t quite had the race they were looking for. Lisa Roberts will be on the start line coming off a win at IM Louisville one day after Kona.

  • Michelle Vesterby: 51% (1-1)
  • Lisa Roberts: 23% (3-1)
  • Anja Beranek: 11% (8-1)
  • Sonja Tajsich: 6% (17-1)

In addition to the athletes who already have a lot of experience on the IM distance, Helle Frederiksen is also on the start list (though it’s not clear if she’ll race here or in Arizona a week before) and will be looking to mix things up.

Winning Odds

Male Race Participants

Last two year’s winner (and second in Kona), Lionel Sanders, is the clear favorite on the men’s side, but Brent McMahon will be looking for a good race after his DNF in Kona this year.

  • Lionel Sanders: 55% (1-1)
  • Brent McMahon: 30% (2-1)
  • Marc Duelsen: 5% (19-1)
  • Philip Graves: 3% (38-1)
  • Jeff Symonds: 2% (43-1)

Female Race Participants

Meredith Kessler has won IM Arizona for the last three years, this year she won’t be able to race as she’s about to join the ranks of super-moms.  In her absence it promises to be an interesting race with a strong and deep field. Kaisa has been doing well on fast courses, but so far Heather has always been able to finish ahead of her when they started the same race. Angela Naeth is returning from a long-term injury, I’m not sure how aggressive she’ll be racing. (Last year she went even faster than the bike course record – 4:36 – but was forced to end her race shortly after T2.) With Michelle Vesterby and Sarah Piampiano there are two more contenders for the win – both of them are coming off a DNF in Kona and will look for a good result to have a decent start to their 2018 seasons.

An interesting addition is Helle Frederiksen who could do her first full-distance race (at this point she’s still on both the Arizona and Cozumel start lists) – as she hasn’t done an IM yet she’s unrated and I have no basis to calculate her odds.

  • Heather Jackson: 44% (1-1)
  • Kaisa Sali: 30% (2-1)
  • Angela Naeth: 11% (8-1)
  • Michelle Vesterby: 8% (11-1)
  • Sarah Piampiano: 5% (21-1)
