Italy’s Alessandro Degasperi and Germany’s Diana Riesler claimed the victories at one of the toughest long-course triathlons on the planet today in the Canary Islands.

Degasperi took the Ironman Lanzarote win in 8:56:49 with a 51:10 swim, a 5:12:12 bike and a 2:47:15 marathon. Germany’s Christian Kramer was second in 8:59:31, with Switzerland’s Mauro Baertsch getting third at 9:04:46.

Riesler dominated the women’s race, thanks in large part to a stellar 5:37:11 bike split. She book-ended that cycling effort with a 55:40 swim and a 3:16:20 marathon, giving her the 9:56:04 win. Austria’s Michi Herlbauer got the runner-up spot in 10:13:50. Great Britain’s Caroline Livesey rounded out the podium in 10:31:57.
