Ironman Sweden 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMSweden_LogoRace Conditions

The conditions for this year’s race at IM Sweden seemed perfect for fast times: Warm weather with hardly any wind helped athletes to post some fast times, especially on the bike. Corinne Abraham posted two new course records: Her bike split of 4:34 was 14 minutes quicker than the 2012 4:48 bike time from Helene Malmqvist. (A number of ladies were faster this year than Helene.) On the back of her fast bike time and a second-best run split Corinne also posted a new overall course record of 8:45, improving on Jodie Cunnama’s 8:54 from 2013.

Kona Qualifying

The top finishers Corinne Abraham and Asa Lundstroem have enough points now to receive an August slot.  Angela Naeth is also in an excellent position, but there are a few unlikely scenarios that may see her fall out of the Kona ranks in the August KPR.
