That was the main question on Sunday June 28 in Klagenfurt, Austria when the starting gun sounded to begin the race.

Vanhoenacker monopolized the top of the podium in Ironman Austria from 2006 to 2011 and has returned in 2015 to the course he knows well.

Although matching the best Ironman time ever of 7:45:58 that he set in his last race in Austria might be a bit of a stretch, he is certainly capable of winning once again.

Vanhoenacker comes off a win in Ironman Brazil 2015 just last month where he claimed the Latin America Championship.

Defending champion Ivan Rana, Michael Weiss, and David Plese were a few of the other pro men capable of taking a run at the podium in the Ironman Austria results 2015.

It was a group of four leading the way after the 2.4-mile swim.

The first official swim finisher was Andreas Giglmayr of Austria in 46:29 but Belgium star Marino Vanhoenacker, and Ivan Rana and Angel Miguel Fidalgo of Spain were all within ten seconds as the four entered transition one.

Michael Weiss was was about five minutes off the pace but made it up on the bike course.

True to form, Vanhoenacker out-distanced the rest of the field on the bike with an excellent split of 4:11:47. Weiss was second fastest in 4:20:57 and moved into second place overall as the marathon began.

Ivan Rana was third onto the run course.

Vanhoenacker ran the first half of the marathon in 1:21.

Although he would not threaten his record-breaking finish time of 2006, he did have a shot at running a personal best marathon that was currently 2:39:34.

At this stage his lead was already about 18 minutes on second place Michael Weiss.

Ivan Rana eventually overtook Weiss for second place.

It doesn’t happen often, but Weiss came back and passed Rana again in the late stages of the run to take over second place once again.

Marino Vanhoeacker wins his seventh Ironman Austria in a time of 7:48:45.
