IM Korea 2011 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

In the past, the times in Korea were pretty slow – and I mentioned that this was at least partly caused by long courses. This year, the adjustment of 6:47 was just a normal number – not crazy fast, but still a little bit faster than IM Hawaii.

Male Results

The athlete who registered for almost every official Ironman race (he was registered for Korea and Austria on the same day!) actually started in Korea and managed to win his first IM improving by quite a bit on his expected time:

Rank Name Nation Actual Time Expected Time
1 Balazs Csoke HUN 08:48:21 09:05:52
2 Andreas Venhorst GER 08:58:46 08:59:01
3 Bevan McKinnon NZL 09:03:50 09:02:52
4 Hiroyuki Nishiuchi JPN 09:18:12 09:14:23
5 Justin Granger AUS 09:30:44 09:07:02
6 Yeun Sik Ham KOR 09:36:02 n/a
7 Yong Taek Kim KOR 10:07:00 n/a

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

Andreas Venhorst and Bevan McKinnon finished close to their expected times and rounded out the podium.

Female Results

On the women’s side, the race was won by late entry Kate Bevilaqua:

Female Race Results

Rank Name Nation Actual Time Expected Time
1 Kate Bevilaqua AUS 09:39:44 09:58:37
2 Maki Nishiuchi JPN 09:56:28 10:13:11
3 Hillary Biscay USA 10:12:20 10:07:31

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

Three finishers seems like a low number, but it was all I could find. But with tracking on the ironamlive site not working for Korea, it was actually tricky to find results, so this may have to be updated once the official results coming out.
