The winners of Ironman Hawaii 2015 were Jan Frodeno of Germany and Daniela Ryf of Switzerland with times of 8:14:40 and 8:57:57 respectively.

Both would be on hand to defend the titles they won last year.

However, it’s become very hard to repeat in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship. The Ironman landscape is much different than it was in the days of Dave Scott, Mark Allen, Natascha Badmann, and Paula Newbie-Fraser.

Paula Newbie-Fraser who won Hawaii in 1986, 1988–1989, 1991–1994, and 1996 became known as “The Queen of Kona”.

Between the four of them, Scott, Allen, Badmann and Newby-Fraser won in Kona twenty-six times. That is truly astounding, but it also show how the playing field has leveled in recent years.

Today there are so many top caliber pro triathletes that probably a dozen pro men and women are capable of winning any given year if the Iron Gods shine down on them on race day. However there is no doubt that Frodeno and Ryf have the credentials to top the podium again in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016.

As the gun sounded to begin the 2016 Ironman it seemed that this might be a year that sees Canadian pros in both male and female categories being podium contenders in Kona.

Both Lionel Sanders and Brent McMahon would have to improve over their 2015 performances in order to keep pace with the always tough European pros. It would be no surprise to see at least one of these men challenging for the podium once the lava dust settles on the Queen K. Highway.

Both Lionel Sanders and Heather Wurtele won the Ironman 70.3 North American Championship 2016.

There are two outcomes that appear certain.

….Jodie Swallow will be among the first female pros out of the water.
….There will be German European pros somewhere on the podium for the men and women.

THE RACE

Harry Wiltshire of Great Britain led a huge group of pro men to the swim finish. Wiltshire posted a time of 48:00. Ruedi Wild of Switzerland was 25th in 48:59, so just 59 seconds separated the top 25 pro men as they began their journey for their place in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016.

In past races a large group also stayed in close contact on the 112-mile course with nobody making a large break at the head of the field. In other words, it was left to the 26.2 marathon to decide who would stand on the podium in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016.

Early on in the bike it was a big pack leading the way as expected and it resulted in the same problem as recent Ironman Hawaii races.

Before the bike was a third over Van Lierde, Raelert, Lange, McMahon were all serving penalties for drafting.

Boecherer had the early lead for the pro men. At about the forty mile mark Michael Weiss and Lionel Sanders were just over a minute behind the leaders.

At the Hawi turn at the top of the climb it was Sebastien Kienle in the lead followed by Boecherer, Weiss, O’Donnell and McKenzie.

Lionel Sanders of Canada made the turn 3:01 off the lead. In just 60 miles he made up over five minutes of his swim time deficit as he begins his drive for a podium spot in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016.

This is the part where most first time Ironman triathletes begin the descent from Hawi thinking the wind will be at their back. It never is. It comes at you from all angles.

Tyler Butterfield is serving a penalty.

Kienle and Stein were leading the way in the late stages of the bike. Frodeno, Weiss, Plese, and Sanders were all in the mix as they neared transition two.

Kienle and Frodeno were the two fastest out of transition. Lionel Sanders posted the fourth fastest bike split of the day to remain in the mix but had almost seven minutes to make up on the leaders. Brent McMahon was ten minutes back despite taking a penalty time out for drafting.

At the start of the marathon it was Kienle and Frodeno running side by side on Ali’i Drive on their way out of Kona.

At the halfway point of the run defending Ironman Hawaii Champion Jan Frodeno has taken a lead of about 1:30 over fellow German Sebastian Kienle.

With just eight miles to go the lead for Frodeno had grown to about three minutes as he headed back to Kona for the final time.

Four miles to go and Frodeno is cruising toward Kona.

Lange is perhaps running best of all in the late stages and passes Ben Hoffman for third place and sets his sights on Kienle who is about three minutes ahead of him. Lange is racing Kona for the first time and is coached by Speedo Guru Faris Al-Sultan.

Jan Frodeno defends his title and takes top spot on the podium in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016.

As far as the women go Canada’s hopes rest on Heather Wurtele and perhaps this is her moment to shine and possibly break into the top five.

Regardless of the outcome, her skill level and sheer will to win should come to the forefront in Kona. Wurtele entered last year’s race in prime condition and then had to miss most of the race due to mechanical issues on the bike course.

Wurtele came in third in the Ironman 70.3 World Championship 2016 with a time of 4:13:36. Melissa Hauschildt was second and Daniela Ryf was fourth. Hauschildt and Ryf are both main contenders in Ironman Hawaii 2016.

Michelle Vesterby has continued to improve in Ironman Hawaii and should also be a force in this race. However there is no doubt that Daniela Ryf will be tough to catch if she is on top of her game.

At about the thirty mile mark Daniela Ryf was in the lead in search of a repeat and top spot on the podium in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016. Alicia Kaye was second, and Beranek in third.

Four minutes back of the leaders in the women’s race leading a pack is Wassner, Wurtele, Carfrae, Van Vlerken, Jackson, Hauschildt. Your winner could come from this group.

For a time it was Mirinda Carfrae and Heather Wurtele riding together as they continued the chase behind Ryf and her group at the front until Wurtele fell off the pace.

At mile 75 the pro women were being led by defending champion Ryf. Then it was Beranek, Kessler, Vesterby, Luxford, and Kaye.

Daniela Ryf leaves bike/run transition with a big lead and is on course to top the podium in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016 and defend her title.

In the first stages of the run it’s Ryf, Beranek, and Jackson. Some things never change from year to year. Frodeno is leading, Ryf is leading, and somewhere out there I’m sure Michelle Vesterby is smiling.

Nearing the marathon halfway mark its Ryf, Beranek, Jackson, Swallow, and Carfrae.

At the twenty mile mark it was Daniela Ryf, Heather Jackson, Miranda Carfrae taking over third, Anja Beranek, Kaisa Lehtonen, Michelle Vesterby, Jodie Swallow, and Asa Lundstrom. Check that….Carfrae just passed Jackson and is in second spot.

Daniela Ryf also defends her title and crosses the finish line first in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship results 2016. Her time of 8:46:46 is a new course record.
