Ironman Florida 2010 Results

h2>IRONMAN FLORIDA 2010 RESULTS

The Ironman Florida 2010 results are official and that pretty much wraps up the Ironman season for this year.

It was another amazing year for Ironman in general as races continued to fill in a matter of days or even less.

Ironman Florida 2010 is history and was the final Ironman race of the year. It may have been the final Ironman for this year but the Ironman Florida 2010 results will produce the first qualifiers for Ironman Hawaii 2011 in Kona.

There were approximately 2800 entrants registered for the race. As is normal with most Ironman races these days there were most likely 40 or more countries represented in the field.

IRONMAN FLORIDA RESULTS 2010 WEATHER

The temperature was on the cooler side which is normally a good thing apart from the swim. If I had my choice, I would rather attempt an Ironman with moderate or cool temperatures as opposed to hot, sunny days.

To me this is better than some of the scorchers I was in like Ironman Hawaii 1984 and the inaugural Couer d’alene race. Both of them were well over 100 degrees at the hottest parts of the day.

From all reports, the Ironman Florida swim and the early stages of the bike were cool, especially by Panama Florida standards.

That sounds a lot like many Ironman Canada races. Usually you get warmed up at about kilometer 60 of the bike.

PRO MEN’S IRONMAN FLORIDA 2010 RESULTS

After much speculation about where the Ironman Florida would take place, it all turned out for the best and the swim took place in the Gulf of Mexico as usual. The oil spill did not impact the Ironman Florida swim as many thought it might.

The first man out of the water was an Olympian named Dirk Bockel. You ever notice how often Olympic swimmers turn up for an Ironman and knock off a swim around 47 minutes?
