Ironman Switzerland 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMSUI_LogoCourse Conditions

As usual, IM Switzerland was relatively slow (overall adjustment of 3:36 compared to a course rating of 5;37). This year, however, the conditions seemed to be conducive to a fast bike (adjustment of 9:03 with a bike course rating of 5:41).

A number of course records were set: Jan Van Berkel set a new overall course record of 8:09:18, improving Ronnie Schildknecht’s 8:12 from 2010. Cameron Wurf set a new bike course record (4:14, erasing the 2006 time by Stefan Riesen), and Lisa Roberts exactly matched the run course record by Kristin Moeller from 2014.

Kona Qualifying Implications

After Zürich, the following athletes are safe for a Kona slot:

  • Annabel Luxford (just needed a finish)
  • Jan van Berkel
  • Mike Phillips
  • David Please

Ronnie Schildknecht is also likely to receive a July slot, however he can still be overtaken by athletes racing in Whistler.

Before the race, Kaisa Sali, Lisa Roberts and Cameron Wurf were already safe.
