After a long hiatus, Ironman Malaysia returned to Langkawi Island today. The region welcomed athletes with the hot and steamy conditions you’d expect from a tropical race. In the end it was pros Patrik Nilsson (SWE) and Diana Riesler (GER) who earned the victories.

Nilsson put together a 49:49 swim, a 4:40:31 bike and a 3:05:37 marathon to earn the 8:41:53 victory. Fredrik Croneborg, also from Sweden, claimed the runner-up spot in 8:58:45. Slovakia’s Karol Dzalaj (SVK) earned the final podium spot in 9:15:00.

Riesler turned in a dazzling performance, dominating the women’s race and finishing in the fifth overall spot. Her day consisted of a 59:11 swim, a 4:58:44 bike and a 3:23:11 marathon. Japan’s Keiko Tanaka was second at 10:00:13, with Australia’s Dimity-Lee Duke finishing third in 10:02:03.
