Long Distance Trivia Question 4

Christmas Day – by now we’re up to question number four:

Who were the last US athletes to finish on the podium (1-3) in Kona?

  1. Men
  2. Women
  3. Bonus: Who were the last ones (men & women) before that?

Long Distance Trivia Question 3

By now it’s Christmas Eve – which is the day of the big family celebration here in Germany. As I am going to prepare dinner for my wife and our parents, I’ll be short – please let me know your guesses by commenting on the blog or by tweeting @ThRadde.

Here’s question number three:

Australia and Britain seem to have a grip on the Kona titles.

  1. Who was the last non-Aussie to win the men’s title? In which year?
  2. Who was the last non-Brit to win the women’s title? In which year?

Merry Christmas to all readers!

Long Distance Trivia Question 2

In order to give you something different than Christmas presents to think about, I’ll post a few trivia questions over the last days of the year. I’m not offering any prices, but feel free to post your guesses as comments or tweets to @ThRadde. The answers to all questions can be found by searching through the posts on this site, smart googling or in my upcoming 2012 Rating Report. If you want to be notified as soon as it is released, please subscribe to my email-list by using the form in the right hand side column.

Here’s question number two:

Which official Ironman races had such a small number of finishers so that not all price-money spots were filled?

A little hint:  Although it was close, this only applies to the female side.

Here’s the first question:

The fastest long distance times this year are by Craig Alexander (7:57:44 in Melbourne) and Caroline Steffen (8:34:51, also in Melbourne).  Who posted the second fastest Ironman-distance times between January and December 2012? The full answer should contain the athlete’s name, finishing time and the location of the race.

  1. Men
  2. Women
