Long Distance Trivia Question 8

My last question had quite a discussion on Twitter (and I still haven’t seen what I consider the right answer) – but here’s already number eight:

This year, we saw two new world best bike times in a long distance triathlon by Andy Starykowicz in IM Florida (4:04:39) and Caroline Steffen in Melbourne (4:35:29). Who had the world best times before them?

  1. Men (name, time, race)
  2. Women (name, time, race)

Long Distance Trivia Question 7

Here is the next of my Trivia Questions – we’re up to number seven:

There are some athletes that race very often in a long-distance race. Among the participants in Kona this year, who has the most finishes during his/her career?

  1. Men (should be pretty easy)

  2. Women (trickier, as prolific racers Hillary Biscay and Belinda Granger didn’t qualify)

Long Distance Trivia Question 6

It is very hard to peak multiple times in a year for a long-distance triathlon. Who were the last Kona champions to win another Ironman race in the same year?

  1. Men (name, year, race)
  2. Women (name, year, race)
