Ironman Hamburg 2022 – Analyzing Results

HamburgCourse Conditions

Once again, IM Hamburg was a fast race. Conditions were perfect for racing – almost no wind and sunny weather. Laura Philipp took full advantage, posting a new bike, run and overall course record. She also set a new fastest German time (improving on Anne Haug’s time from Copenhagen 2018). She missed Chrissie Wellington’s fastest Iron-distance time (set at Challenge Roth in 2011) by only 7 seconds! I will have to do a bit of updating to my IM Records page soon!

Kona Qualifying

As the European Regional Championships, IM Hamburg offered the female Kona slots.

These will go to:

  • Chelsea Sodaro
  • Manon Genet
    and
  • Heini Hartikainen

Race winner Laura Philipp was already qualified. You can find all Kona qualifiers here.
