Ironman Florida 2021 – Analyzing Results

Logo_IMFLACourse Conditions

As always, there were some fast times in Florida. But this year the conditions were relatively slow compared to earlier years: This year’s adjustment was 3:37 compared to the course rating of 20:07. Stormy conditions made the swim very slow (roughly 9 minutes slower than what already are often tricky swim conditions in Florida) and the bike a lot less fast than normal (about 8 and 11 minutes slower than the two previous years), while the run conditions were pretty much normal for Florida. 

Even with slower conditions, male winner Gustav Iden set a new overall course record (almost four minutes quicker than Joe Skipper’s 2019 winning time) and also a new run course record (1:19 quicker than Ben Hoffman also in 2019). An impressive first Ironman for sure – and new record for the fastest full-distance debut ever!

Kona Qualifying

IM Florida offered two female and two male Kona Pro slots, the male slots were originally intended for IM California which had to be canceled. The slots go to

  • Heather Jackson and Laura Zimmermann for the women
    and
  • Robert Kallin and Arnaud Guillaux for the men.

Gustav Iden, Lionel Sanders and Skye Moench had already secured their slots before the race. The full list of Kona 2022 qualifiers can be found here.
