Ironman Louisville 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMLouCourse Conditions

As you can see from the results, the swim was shortened considerably because of strong currents. Officially, the swim was 0.9 miles (about 1.5k), but it must have been downstream as most times are around 12 minutes.

Ironman Louisville 2017 – Analyzing Results

IMLouRace Conditions

In previous years, the adjustments for IM Louisville have been changing quite a lot, probably an influence of the weather on race day (which would mainly show up on the run when the heat and humidity take their toll) but likely also because of course changes (especially on the swim and bike).

This was the first year since 2014 that IM Louisville was a professional race, and the adjustments were not very consistent with earlier years. The swim appears to be quite a bit slower, the bike a bit faster and the run faster by quite a bit – I’m not sure if there have been changes to the course that might explain these changes.

Overall, the conditions seem to have been favorable for quick times, but the new records that were set are also indicative of great performances by the respective athletes. Lisa Roberts set new records for the bike (by 6 minutes over the 2009 bike split by Lisbeth Kristensen), the run (again by 6 minutes over the 2009 marathon by Kim Loeffler) and also overall (by 14 minutes over Nina Kraft’s 2009 winning time). On the men’s side Andy Starykowicz’s bike time was an improvement of 21 minutes over Chris McDonald’s time from 2013, also helping him to set a new overall course record (by 11 minutes). Definitely a day for new records and dominating performances!
