Approximately 2,500 age-group triathletes, including more than 1,000 first-time Ironman competitors, took on the challenge of Ironman Sweden 2015 in the city of Kalmar, situated on the Baltic Sea. Choppy conditions on the swim made for a rough start to the day, but ideal weather on the bike and run made for a picture-perfect day.

A pro race was held as well. The small but competitive field put on quite a show for the more than 60,000 spectators along the course. Local favorite Patrik Nilsson handily won the men’s race in 8:08:05, accomplishing his goal of becoming the first Swedish winner of Ironman Sweden. Astrid Stienen of Germany won the women’s race with a time of 9:12:27 to take home her first Ironman title.
