Top European pros race for podium in Ironman Austria Results 2016

The winners of Ironman Austria 2015 were Marino Vanhoenacker and Eva Wutti. They posted times of 7:48:45 and 8:45:37 respectively.

Vanhoenacker returned to defend his title but Wutti did not so a new Ironman Austria female champion would be crowned in 2016.

When the gun sounded to begin the 3.8km swim in Lake Worthersee it was a pretty difficult task to pick the male pro podium favorites in the Ironman Austria results 2016. There were probably a dozen pro men capable of winning a spot on the podium on their best effort.

Michael Weiss returned after finishing second behind Vanhoenacker in 2015. David Plese returned to Ironman Austria as well after finishing fourth in the same race.

However there were new podium threats this year as well. Bart Aernouts, Michael Weiss, and Viktor Zyemtsev were just a few of the other male pros capable of challenging for a top placing in the Ironman Austria results 2016.

The start list for the pro women was not that large but was certainly plenty of talent. Mirinda Carfrae is always tough.

Amber Ferreira of the USA, Canadian Karen Thibodeau, and Michaela Herlbauer all went into the race with podium potential as well.

Karen Thibodeau started out well as she took the lead into the first transition, but it was Mirinda Carfrae taking over the race on the bike course. She was about six minutes faster than anyone else.

Mirinda Carfrae takes top spot and does set a course record with her time of 8:41:17. She also posted a sizzling marathon time of 2:49:06.
