Ironman World Championship St. George

It took three years and a move from Kona to St. George, but there was finally an Ironman World Championship race. Good things do indeed come to those who wait, as the men’s and women’s pro fields delivered one blockbuster performance after another on a hot, hard, and hilly course. Olympic gold medalist Kristian Blummenfelt won his first Ironman World Championship in only his second-ever attempt at the distance, clocking an astonishing 7:49:16 on a hilly course, while Daniela Ryf reclaimed her spot on the top step of the podium with her fifth Ironman world title in an emotional 8:34:59.
