Challenge Roth 2011 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Just one week after Austria, the world record was broken again – this time, both the men’s and the women’s world best times were broken. As Austria the week before (race adjustment of 23:59), conditions in Roth were really good, even a bit better: Roth 2011 gets an adjustment of 24:25, the fastest I have ever seen and more than four minutes quicker than last year. (It also means that I rank Andreas’ time as quicker than Marino’s time from Austria, but Chrissie’s time from last year was actually a better performance than her time this year.)

Male Results

On the male side, Andreas Raelert bested Marino’s time from Austria a week ago by more than four minutes:

Rank Name Nation Actual Time Expected Time
1 Andreas Raelert GER 07:41:33 07:55:42
2 Sebastian Kienle GER 07:57:06 07:54:37
3 Keegan Williams NZL 08:16:01 08:32:02
4 Christian Ritter GER 08:18:40 08:26:09
5 Gilad Rotem ISR 08:20:11 08:51:36
6 Lothar Leder GER 08:22:00 08:45:46
7 Andriy Yastrebov UKR 08:24:34 08:23:22
8 Andreas Borch   08:25:38 09:05:11
9 Benjamin Sanson FRA 08:27:50 09:39:26
10 Clemens Coenen GER 08:29:26 08:31:22
11 Bernd Hagen GER 08:32:10 08:45:37
12 Bernd Eichhorn GER 08:39:12 08:36:30
13 Andreas Fuchs   08:40:44 08:57:48
14 Manuel Wyss   08:45:13 09:39:43
15 Dion Harrison GBR 08:54:39 09:08:36
16 Jan Strangmuller USA 09:06:59 09:40:35
17 Margus Tamm EST 09:15:08 08:52:48
18 Nicholas Kinsey GBR 09:22:46 09:32:22
19 Tim Sheeper USA 09:39:16 09:10:44
20 Gael Mainard FRA 09:54:35 08:55:07
21 Reinaldo Oliveira BRA 09:56:26 09:23:15
22 Glen Gore Sou 10:17:51 09:21:18
23 Daniel Wells CAN 10:49:44 09:06:59

Expected time is based on athlete’s rating (prior to race) and race conditions.

Although he was in front of Sebastian Kienle the whole day, apparently he felt pushed to the new world record. Andreas improved his rating a bit, securing his first spot in the rankings. Sebastian also put in a great time, going sub-8 for the second time in his second IM-distance race – giving him the 2nd place in the rankings. It would be great to see him race on another course in Kona, but he’s still pretty young. Keegan Williams made another step forward, he seems to be improving all the time.

Female Results

On the female side, Chrissie managed to go even faster than a year ago:

Rank Name Nation Actual Time Expected Time
1 Chrissie Wellington GBR 08:18:13 08:32:29
2 Julia Wagner GER 08:56:23 n/a
3 Rebekah Keat AUS 08:59:22 09:03:02
4 Belinda Harper NZL 09:06:47 10:01:31
5 Belinda Granger AUS 09:12:56 09:18:24
6 Heike Priess GER 09:40:01 10:16:14
7 Alma Sarapuu EST 09:41:42 10:16:17
8 Celia Kuch NZL 09:47:13 10:04:50
9 Sonja Jaarsveld Net 09:56:03 09:24:43
10 Helen Buley Sou 10:11:18 10:09:43
11 Zeljka Saban   10:38:20 11:15:35

Expected time is based on athlete’s rating (prior to race) and race conditions.

German rookie Julia Wagner started her IM-distance career with a sub-9 and a second place. Bek Keat managed to post another sub-9, solidifying her spot in the TOP 10 rankings.
