IM Switzerland 2013 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Wow – this year’s IM Switzerland was really slow. I calculated a total adjustment of -10:02. The non-wetsuit swim and the bike were just a bit slower than the last year, but the run (in a severe heat) had an adjustment of -4:12 – more than 10 minutes slower than last year. A lot of people ran into issues on the run: T2 leader Jan Van Berkel had to withdraw with a heat stroke, and there is a lot of red in the run column (indicating slower than expected – even after the adjustment).

Male Race Results

Ronnie Schildknecht continued his non-Kona winning streak: As far as I know he is the first athlete winning an Ironman race seven times in a row. Ivan Rana and Per Bittner round out the podium (also grabbing Kona slots).
