Ironman Copenhagen 2021 – Analyzing Results

IMCPHCourse Conditions

This year was another super-quick race in Copenhagen – the Top 7 finished under 8 hours, the second highest number of sub-8s behind Tulsa 2021. There were a good number of course records as well: Winner Cam Wurf posted a new overall record (beating the old record by Patrik Nilsson by more than three minutes) and also a new bike course record (his 4:02 broke the 2016 record by Andy Raelert by more than ten minutes). Cam also set a new fastest time for Australia and the continent of Oceania. Before that, there was also a new  swim course record by Lukasz Wojt, erasing the 2011 mark by Stephen Bayliss. The last new record from Copenhagen I’m aware of: Henrik Goesch set a new fastest time for Finland, improving Pauli Kiuru’s time from Roth 1991.

Kona Qualifying

IM Copenhagen offered two Kona Pro slots, these go to:

  • Lionel Sanders
    and
  • Henrik Goesch.

Race winner Cam Wurf was already qualified (he won IM Italy in September 2019). With the current qualifying rules, these were the last male Kona Pro qualifiers for the February race. The last qualifying race for the female Pros is IM Hamburg next week. The full list of qualifiers can be found here.
