Fastest 2017 Ironman Finishes by Continent and Nation (Men)

I’ve recently posted about the fastest 2017 IM finishes, this post aggregates the data by continent and nations: Who were the fastest women in 2017?

Fastest Male IM Finishes by Continent

The continental situation is the same for the men as for the women: Europe, North America and Oceania are close together, Africa and South America are a bit back, followed by Asia/Pacific with a large gap. One surprise to me is that the fastest Oceania time in 2017 was posted by an athlete from New Zealand (Mike Phillips).

Fastest Male IM Finishes by Nation

There are always nations where the top spot is hotly contested (for example the “big nations” that have most of the wins: Australia, Great Britain, Germany, USA) and it’s not always easy to keep track of who’s been the fastest in the season. There were a number of national records this year, with the exception of Tim Don’s British record at IM Brasil they were all posted in Texas and Barcelona. (A complete list of national records can be found on my page on IM Records.)
