Ironman Cozumel 2018 – Analyzing Results

CozumelLogoCourse Conditions

Last year the conditions in Cozumel were very fast, this year was still quick but almost ten minutes slower than 2017. The swim is always a bit dependent on the currents, and after good bike times a couple of athletes were struggling on the run and no new course records were set.

Ironman Cozumel 2017 – Analyzing Results

IMCozLogoRace Conditions

This year was very fast for Cozumel – with a new course rating of 9:07 the 2017 adjustment was 23:47, meaning that the race was in the order of 15 minutes quicker than normal. This was caused by a fast swim (there was no talk about a shortened swim, so it was either misplaced buoys or currents aiding the swim) but also a quick bike (based on the numbers roughly 8 to 10 minutes quicker than normal) and a not quite-as-hard-as-normal run.

The fast conditions helped the winners race extremely fast and post new course records. Discarding the shortened 2013 race, Lisa Roberts is the first woman to go sub-9 (she broke Corinne Abraham’s 2015 time of 9:06:40 with a 8:54), and Sebastian Kienle is the first athlete to go sub-8 in Cozumel (his 7:48 broke Frederik Van Lierde’s 2016 record of 8:03:09). Sebi also posted a new bike course record, while Jarrod Shoemaker set a new swim course record and Ivan Rana improved his own run course record. On the female side, Alicia Kaye posted a new swim course record and Rachel McBride set a new bike course record.

Kona Qualifying Implications

It’s still early in the season, but a number of athletes have raced Cozumel with an eye towards Kona 2018:

  • Sebastian Kienle validated his Automatic Qualifier slot.
  • Ivan Rana scored enough points to be safe for a July slot. 
  • Lisa Roberts has won two IMs, but she’ll need a few more points for a slot – for now she’s “in the bubble”. However, she should be able to secure her slot just by racing 70.3s in spring 2018.
