Ironman Sweden 2019 – Analyzing Results

IMSweden_LogoCourse Conditions

Conditions in Kalmar have been blazing fast this year (adjustment of 31:04), resulting in a completely new set of course records.

In the swim, Alexander Berggren posted the fastest time of 43:50, but there were six athletes faster than the old record by Clemente Alonso from 2017. The 2017 bike time by Cam Wurf (4:14) is also no longer a course record: Boris Stein posted a 4:03:08 – only Andy Starykowicz has ever ridden a faster time in an Ironman. Denis Chevrot improved the run course record, even if “only” by 12 seconds.

The overall course record was broken as well – in fact we saw the first seven sub-8 finishes ever in Sweden! Boris Stein’s 7:49:14 is now the new course record and also the fastest IM finish in 2019. Mathias Peterson’s 7:52:29 finish in third place is now the fastest Ironman debut (the old record was held by Brent McMahon with a 7:55 at Arizona 2014). He also broke the Danish national record, which was set by Rasmus Henning when he won Challenge Roth 2010 in 7:52:36
