The 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 (twice in Roth), Daniela Ryf (once in Roth, once in Kona) and Lucy Charles (once in Roth) 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.
Anne was finally able to validate her Automatic slot from finishing third 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.)
