IM Finland 2021 – Analyzing Results

Logo IMFINCourse Conditions

This was the first edition of IM Finland. With an adjustment of 11:15 the course was about as quick as IM New Zealand and a little bit slower than the “old home” of the European Championships in Frankfurt. The bike leg create most of the quickness, and there was quite a bit of rain on the run creating at least not very pleasant conditions. After crossing the finish line, all three podium finishers quickly changed into dry and warmer clothing.

Kona Qualifying

As the European Championships, IM Finland offered 3 Kona slots for the female Pros. These go to:

  • Laura Philipp
  • Jocelyn McCauley
  • Imogen Simmonds

All three were happy to secure their slots and are already looking forward to race Kona in October. 

The full list of Kona qualifiers can be found here.
