Another world record for Chrissie.
Spent today in Roth watching one of the biggest races in the world. Conditions were good and the racing was awsome. Chrissie broke her own world record by another 10+ minutes and won the womens race by over 30min to cross the line in 8.19!!
The mens race was great to watch with one of the best fields outside of Kona.
Sebastian Kienle totally tore the field apart over the 180km bike, setting a new record of 4.14.07 forcing Norman Stadler to pull out. Sebastian held on to second place in his first Ironman while Rasmuss Henning took the win midway through the run leg. Eneko Lanos finished third and Aussie Pete Jacobs came across the line in 4th.
