Fastest 2017 Ironman Finishes by Continent and Nation (Women)

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 Female IM Finishes by Continent

Looking at the fastest times by continent, a clear order is evident: Europe, North America and Oceania are close together, Africa and South America are a bit back, followed by Asia/Pacific with a large gap.

Fastest Female 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. We’ve also seen a number of new national records this season, for example Helle Frederiksen’s 8:55 debut IM finish with a new Danish record was quite impressive. (A complete list of national records can be found on my page on IM Records.)
