I thought Don was more of an honorific?

Tim Don has been coached for a few years now by Julie Dibens which should make you happy


And Matt Bottrill for the bike sessions.

Is it a legit course? 4:06 is an incredible split...

27+mph by my reckoning. In the rain too, with 600m of elevation thrown in. Rest of the pro field riding 24-25mph.

Kienle, Sanders and Brownlee put 4 mins into Tim Don on the bike at 70.3 St George, all things being equal that would put those 3 in the vicinity of a sub 4 IM split under the same course/conditions.

No, really it doesn't, the fitness demands for the two events are nearly identical.

On 2 occasions he's surpassed himself, raced beyond his dreams, had an outstanding performance. One was in a year he missed 3 drug tests, the other is Brazil, in a sport with very little testing at all.


He went 25mins faster than he did at last year's IM Brazil, beating his podium rivals (Buckingham & Amorelli) by the same amount. Last year McMahon beat his rivals (Don & Collington) by 18mins, between the bike and run. Perhaps there is a motorpacing or drafting advantage for the leader? (although there was no such big gap in 2015 or 2014).

I don't know the frequency of testing for the biological passport, but a gross difference Hb or steroid should show up, surely? One might imagine an extra test being done following an outstanding/suspicious result, to add to the passport, but I don't know if there is any such thing. Don is also listed on the IM registered testing pool, but the frequency of testing isn't apparent on ironman.com.

For an athlete who has been a professional for over 20 years, has had access to the best coaching, equipment, training groups and facilities available and who is nearly forty to find ways to significantly improve is very impressive. Hope for us all!

Just think how good he would have been at the olympics if he had learnt sooner to be a good triathlete "you have to have a very strong bike" and it is no good just riding low you also need high power. It only took twenty years to gain such pearls.

So up until now he has been racing IM clean after being dirty in ITU and not qualifying for London. This year he decided to start injecting again to kick butt?
