Fastest Times on the IM-distance (Overall & Individual Legs)

TriRating reader Marcin has sent me the following question:

“I was searching for a list of fastest bike splits in long course triathlons and was not able to find anything more current than 2015! I know that a lot of people would be interested in that especially now since Cameron Wurf will try to break 4 hours while winning a race on December 3rd in Ironman Western Australia! Do you possibly have such a list?”

Using my database with Ironman results from 2005 onwards, here is my list of fastest times overall and for each of the individual legs. (This means that some older results are not included, for the “definitive lists” of sub-8 for the men and sub-9 finishes for the women, check out Tri247.com.) I am also not including results from races with courses that have been acknowledged as short, for example because of construction the bike course in this year’s IM Frankfurt was short by somewhere between 3 and 5k.

TOP 25 Fastest Swim Times (Men)

The fastest swim times are dominated by races that may have been the correct length but that were aided by a current making the swim fast.
