Winning Odds

Male Race Participants

The men’s race looks like a repeat of last year’s race when Lionel and Sebi were neck to neck for most of the day:

  • Lionel Sanders: 55% (1-1)
  • Sebastian Kienle: 41% (1-1)

Female Race Participants

Anne Haug is the clear favorite on the female side – she has shown a number of very strong 70.3s this year. But she faces a large number of competitors including last year’s winner Lucy Charles who is likely to lead for the swim and a large portion of the bike. But when the others manage to catch Lucy towards the end of the bike, it’ll be a running race, and Anne holds most of the cards in that situation.

  • Anne Haug: 58% (1-1)
  • Lucy Charles: 11% (8-1)
  • Emma Pallant: 6% (15-1)
  • Helle Frederiksen: 6% (15-1)
  • Radka Kahlefeldt: 5% (18-1)
  • Annabel Luxford: 5% (19-1)
  • Heather Wurtele: 5% (21-1)
  • Ellie Salthouse: 3% (35-1)

    Hi, Kaisa Sali clocked 4:06:33 at IRONMAN 70.3 Monterrey two weeks ago. Sorry, but she will definitely finish better than 8th position in Samorin. 🙂

    I don’t see how Kienle will take time on Sanders in swimming. Previous races where they were both on the start line saw Sanders pulling Kienle all 1.9km long…
    And no Bart Aernouts in the top10?

    Wow, guess I owe you an apology 🙂 Curious to find out what happened to Sanders in the swim.
