That must have been a great mens marathon to watch, I'm such a lightweight & called it a night at T2.

Great efforts by Lucy Charles & David McNamee - is that a new best British male performance at Kona? And I reckon Buzz and Hammerer came closest to calling it on this thread, with a shout out to SF for his comments elsewhere Very Happy

Wasn't spencer s 4th or 5th back in the day?
Don't think any Brit Male ever stood on the podium before.
Great race to watch.

Haha! Thanks. Him being within 5 or 6 minutes meant he was always going to be a threat. I guess training with Frodeno paid off after all! Wink

There is very little news about Matt Russellís crash. He T-boned a car that was cutting through an intersection and went straight through the side window. Heís had to go into surgery for a laceration to his neck but I think may now be stable.

Itís big news in my books and I think itís odd there is so little coverage of anything happening!

I should have put money on Lange anyway then, thought about it. Smile That run last year... I thought if he could get the bike sorted he'd go ballistic this year.

What happened to Frodo in 35th?

Awesome races from McNamee and Charles.

Anyone wanting to win the MV60 category within the next few years is going to have to be thinking in terms of going 9.45 to have any chance of beating Rob Barel. ie. Impossible Smile

Frodo was injured. Seemed to be hip or lower back as he kept stopping to stretch, walked a bit but seemed to ease and he got running again. Was right there off the bike.

Kudos for finishing. Far too often you see the top dogs drop out rather than lose face crossing the line down the rankings. I'll give him that one.

Well I only made it to T2 as well, sounds like it was exciting, brilliant performances from Charles and McNamee, if she keeps improving Ryf will be getting very nervous, she lost quite a bit of time in the last miles of the bike by the sound of things.

Having seen her position a trip to the wind tunnel might help but I can't believe she hasn't already been to one. She's only young as well.

Hat off to Frodeno as well, a lot of people would have sacked that, especially when you are used to winning.

Frodo had a glute issue I think. No doubt it will be revealed in a podcast imminently.

I know a lot of people thought Sanders would hold-on, but tbh, after about 10 miles, it wasn't looking good as Lange got up to speed. Like anyone with a heart, I was willing him on though. I was using the GPS tracker on the IM site, and it was the best way to see where everyone was, the passes, and people closing in. I swear the commentators couldn't have had this, with their poor grasp of what was going on, during both bike & run Rolling Eyes Welch, despite his experience, continues to be a poor commentator; very stilted. Oh, and loved all the adverts near the end, as it hotted up. Very cynical. We lost audio as well several times; can you imagine this happening in major sports.

So. IM coverage still as poor as ever, but I'm glad we have it!

Oh quote of the night for me, on ST:

"I feel like I'm watching a Cheetah chasing down an injured Bison that's been separated from the herd"

But Sanders has another fan after Saturday.

What an epic night, I was glued to it for the entire 8-9 hours.

Moment of the night: Lange catches Sanders at an insane pace, while Sanders always iffy run style deteriorates further, yet he still made a forlorn, desperate doomed to fail attempt to hang on which lasted about 15m.

Having it on redbull.tv was a plus over previous years; meant I could have that on the TV leaving my laptop free to check the timing updates. Of course if they actually showed timing information on the coverage I wouldn't have needed to do this!
