Ironman Western Australia 2012 – Analyzing Results

Western Australia closed the books on the 2012 Ironman races. Race conditions were quote good (adjustment of 15:53 leading to a new course rating of 12:44), even if the day started with a relatively slow swim in choppy conditions and ended with a hot run.

Male Race Results

Jimmy Johnsen from Denmark was the athlete who played his cards best: He was close to the front all day, then took the lead for good after 30k on the run and posted the best marathon time:

Race favorite Timo Bracht is not listed, details are still a bit sketchy, here is what I was able to find: He had two flats on the bike, then took a new wheel from a tech support station and was apparently disqualified for outside assistance. 

Female Race Results

As on the men’s side, pre-race favorite Rebekah Keat wasn’t able to win the race, but at least she finished a respectable second after Britta Martin, who also used the race-best marathon to win the race:
