IM Lake Placid

Ironman Lake Placid 2022 – Analyzing Results

IMLPCourse Conditions

This year, we’ve seen some fast bike times: Michael Weiss was almost four minutes quicker than Rasmus Svenningsson last year, and Heather Jackson rode three minutes quicker than the 2021 bike course record set by Lisa Norden. However, the course was a few miles short, in the coverage they said that the out-and-backs were shortened because of construction and other events. I won’t count the bike times as course records. In addition, female winner Sarah True would have set a new overall course record, almost breaking 9 hours and besting Heather’s time from 2016 by 9 minutes. (Even with two or three extra miles on the bike, Sarah would quite likely have been able to beat Heather’s time, but what time should I consider as the course record then?)

Kona Qualifying

IM Lake Placid offered 2m + 2f Kona Pro slots, these will go to

  • Cody Beals and Michael Weiss for the men
    and
  • Sarah True and Jodie Robertson for the women.

Heather Jackson was already qualified. The full list of qualifiers can be found here.

Ironman Lake Placid 2021 – Analyzing Results

LP LogoRace Conditions & Course Records

There were some changes to the course this year, even so the bike leg was about as slow as in previous years. The swim and run weren’t fast either (even if not quite as slow as in 2019), leading to the slow times that are typical for Lake Placid. There were a few new “fastest times” for Lake Placid: Male winner Rasmus Svenningsson broke the 2019 bike course record and the 2017 overall course record.  Female winner Lisa Norden broke the old bike course record set by second-place finisher Heather Jackson in 2017.

Kona Qualifying

There were six Kona Pro slots on the line in Lake Placid. The result lists show 29 men and 18 women, this would result in 4 slots for the men and 2 for the women. These slots should go to

  • Men: Rasmus Svenningson, Kevin Portmann, Adam Feigh and Matt Russell
    and
  • Women: Lisa Norden and Joanna Ryter

Arnaud Guilloux, Joe Skipper and Heather Jackson were already qualified. You can find the full list of Pros already qualified here.

Kona slots and Prize Money

IM Lake Placid has 2m+2f +2u Pro Kona slot(s). It has a total prize purse of 100.000 US$, paying 10 deep. Based on my understanding of how Ironman assign these 2 extra slots, both will go to the me if they have at least 60% of all Pro starters on race morning. Currently, the male Pros have 41 of 68 Pros on the start list or 60,3% – which would mean a total of 4 slots for the men. But this very close and as there are a lot of names on the list who are unlikely to race, changes are to be expected. It remains to be seen where the slots will finally land, and we may have to wait until race morning for the final numbers to have a clearer picture.

Male Race Participants

The strength of the field is 22% of a typical Kona field.
