On Sunday August 23 an excellent field of pros once again met up in historic Copenhagen, Denmark to race for prize money, Kona Ranking Points, and bragging rights.

Time is running out to earn points toward entry into the 2015 Ironman World Championship race set to take place in the Fall.

As a matter of fact this could well be the last European WTC Ironman that offers up Ranking Points for 2015.

The winners of Ironman Copenhagen 2014 were Henrik Hydelund and Daniela Ryf.

Hydelund would be defending the title he won in 2014, but Ryf was not entered in the 2015 race and a new female champion would be crowned.

Hydelund would have to beat some very tough competition if he was to repeat as Ironman Copenhagen champion.

Mike Aigroz, Jan Raphael, and Guilherme Manocchio were just a few of the male pros capable of competing for podium spots on their best effort.

Vesterby was fighting back and holding onto the lead as the pro women ran in the last stages of the marathon.

With less than 7k to run the lead for Vesterby had grown to over two minutes on Sofie Goos with Sonja Tajsich well back in third place.

Michelle Vesterby is the 2015 Ironman Copenhagen champion and I’m sure she will be making her presence felt at the 2015 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii in a couple of months.
