Ironman New Zealand 2020 – Analyzing Results

IMNZCourse Conditions

Conditions in Taupo were quite favorable today (adjustment of 8:51 leading to a new course rating of 7:47), especially the bike was reported quite calm and lead to a couple of quick times (bike adjustment 8:11). The performance of the day was Teresa Adam’s bike leg, her 4:36:11 broke the old course record (on a slightly different course) by Lucy Gossage from 2016 by almost 15 minutes, while no one else was able to beat Lucy’s time. Teresa also had the fastest swim of the day, combined with a 3:05 marathon she also set a new overall course record of 8:40:29, improving on Jocelyn McCauley’s winning time of 8:53 from 2019.

On the men’s side, Joe Skipper and Philipp Koutny got close to Andrew Starykowicz’s 4:12 bike record, then Joe also had a blazing fast 2:43 marathon and set a new course record of 7:54:17, improving Terenzo Bozzone’s first sub-8 in Taupo from 2018.
