Ironman Arizona 2012 – Analyzing Results

The conditions in Arizona were close to what we’ve seen in the past: A race adjustment of 10:40 is very close to the new course rating of 8:47.

Male Race Results

The surprise of the day was German Nils Frommhold, winning his first IM in impressive fashion. He was leading after the swim, stayed close to the front on the bike (where Andy Starykowicz posted another bike course record), and then finished with the race-best run. Paul Matthews (in his second IM) had a great run as well, but couldn’t close the gap. TJ Tollakson lead the run for some time, but his 2:56 marathon was not enough to take the win.

Female Race Results

On the female side, Linsey Corbin finally managed to win the race after three second places in a row. She had to run down Meredith Kessler who followed up her 4th place in Florida with a second place in Arizona only two weeks later. Leanda Cave was true to her word, was never in contention and just validated her Kona slot by finishing in 6th place.
