New course highlights Ironman South Africa results 2016.

Many triathletes return to Mandela Bay year after year to try and earn their spots in the Ironman South Africa results 2016.

The course included a one-lap 3.8k swim, a two lap 180k bike, and a new four-lap marathon course that was changed so spectators could be more involved in cheering their favorite athletes on.

FEMALE PRO START LIST

Jodie Ann Swallow was fully expected to have the lead after the swim because of her swimming talent. However there was plenty of talent in the starting field for the pro women when it comes to biking and that has a way of balancing the scale.

Annabel Luxford, Dede Briesbauer, and Lucy Gossage ranked highly as the race began, as did Susie Cheetham and Kaisa Lehtonen.

To nobody’s surprise it was Jody Swallow posting the fastest swim time for the pro women with a swim split of 52:11.

She was a full four minutes ahead of second place Annabel Luxford. Dede Griesbauer was another two minutes back of the leader in third place.

In 2015 Swallow had a nine minute lead after the swim.

Annabel Luxford recorded the fastest bike split of the day for the pro women with a time of 4:49:17. As it turns out it was just over ten minutes faster than Jodie Swallow. It put Luxford in the lead as the the 42km marathon began for the pro women.

As expected, Lucy Gossage was also in the mix in third place but had some work to do as Susie Cheetham was right there as well. Kasisa Lehtonen and Asa Lundstrom were major factors and were well-positioned as well.

Jodie Swallow fell off the pace and as the run progressed into the 23km mark the lead for Luxford was down to just 2:14 over Kasisa Lehtonen who had moved into second. Susie Cheetham was now in third as she had passed Gossage.

What a race by Lehtonen as she surged into the lead and began to create a gap for herself heading into the final third of the run. Now it was Susie Cheetham chasing after her in second place.

Kaisa Lehtonen of Finland is strongest of all and crosses the finish line first in the Ironman South Africa results 2016. It’s her first Ironman victory and she automatically earns a place in the 2016 World Championship in Kona Hawaii.
