Alexander (Aus) and Wellington (GBr) won the IronMan-competition in Hawaii. Alexander the third time, for Wellington the fourth time.
Once again a hot day at Hawaii, almost too much for 3.86 km swimming, 180 km cycling and 42.195 km running. Apparently it wasn't that bad for Craig Alexander, who won his third Hawaii-IronMan in a new championship record. The former record was made by the Belgian Luc van Lierde in 1996, but on a different track. Alexander finished after 8h 03' 56",almost six minutes ahead of Pete Jacobs, who came in second. The German Raelert completed the podium.
Chrissie Wellington won the women's race with a close lead out of the American Carfrae. Less than three minutes more needed Carfrae to complete her race. Leanda Cave came in third.
