Ironman Lanzarote Results
Bracht and Joyce win.
Germany’s Timo Bracht and Great Britain’s Rachel Joyce took home wins today at Ironman Lanzarote.
Germany’s Konstantin Bachor led the swim (46:31) and bike (4:47:28) but that didn’t matter much in the overall picture. Bracht ran the best marathon (2:47:20) to overtake Bachor and win (8:30:44) by over 13 minutes. He also beat the previous course record (8:35:40) set by Thomas Hellriegel (GER) in 1995. Bachor finished second (8:44:06) and Denmark’s Esben Hovgaard picked up third (8:54:38).
Second in 2009, Joyce led by a little over six minutes heading out on the run, and simply added to that lead during course of the marathon. She crossed the finish (9:28:12) over 15 minutes ahead of Switzerland’s Natascha Badmann (9:43:40), and Denmark’s Karina Ottosen finished further back in third (10:10:15).
