2013 Ironman Japan results

Once again Ironman Japan is up and running with the latest edition of the race hosting a sold-out field of 1600 triathletes looking to become part of the 2013 Ironman Japan results at Lake Toya, Japan on Saturday August 31.

It was a very small field of pros that took part in the race as many of pro Ironman triathletes have put in some hard racing in the past few months in a last ditch attempt to earn Kona Ranking Points for the 2013 Ironman World Championships in Kona.

The Ironman 70.3 World Championships 2013 are also set to take place in just one week in Lake Las Vegas.

Any points earned in Ironman Japan 2013 will go towards the 2014 World Championships.

I don’t recall too many Ironman races where swim times of 45 minutes were posted, but there were three Japanese male pros under the 46-minute mark in Lake Toya.

Masuda Daiki of Japan was out of the water in a sizzling time of 45:45. He was followed by Suganuma Shinya and Hiramatsu Kodo with times of 45:48 and 45:49 respectively.

Martin Jensen was quite far back with a swim time of 49:22, but it didn’t really matter all that much as nobody in the field was able to keep up with him in the single-loop 112-mile bike course or two-loop 26.2-mile marathon.

He was the only one to break the five hour mark with a bike split of 4:52:28. Nobody in the pro field ran the two-loop 26.2-mile marathon under three hours but Jensen posted a time of 3:01:09 and cruised to an easy victory over Petr Vabrousek of Czechoslovakia.

PRO FEMALE ENTRIES

Wu, Michelle...........Australia
Emi, Sakai.............Japan
Li, Shiao-Yu...........Taiwan
Megumi, Shigaki........Japan

it really looked like Michelle Wu could come out on top of this race of the four pro women entered when she came out of the water first, but she was no match for Shiao-Yu Li on the bike course.

Li battled Sakai Emi for the top bike split and her 26.2-mile run time of 3:13:20 was enough to give her the victory over Michelle Wu who was well off the pace on the bike course.
