Germany’s Anne Haug dominated Sunday’s Ironman Copenhagen race with a stellar 8:31:32 finish time—one of the fastest ever by a female Ironman athlete. She put together a 51:04 swim, a 4:37:28 bike, and a 2:57:26 marathon to earn the victory and a spot on the Ironman World Championship starting line where she’ll be a favorite to get on the podium again. Denmark’s Camilla Pedersen crossed the finish line in second (8:49:23), with Denmark’s Maja Stage Nielsen rounding out the top three at 9:02:49. There was no professional men’s race at Copenhagen this year.
The course in Copenhagen, Denmark is known for offering a unique blend of capital city racing but with a friendly, warm, and charming atmosphere. The course passed many of the picturesque city’s historic landmarks, such as the world-famous Opera House, the Little Mermaid statue, Amalienborg Palace (home of the Danish Queen), and the New Harbour waterfront.
