marino vanhoenacker has set the new ironman world record of 7h 45min 58sec.
swim: 46min 49sec (1:13/100m)
bike: 4h 15min 37sec (42.3 kmh)
run: 2h 39min 24sec (3:46min/km)
i guess it pays of to keep doing and doing the same race until you learn it by heart.
previous world record was held by luc van lierde, also a belgian.
whats with belgians and ironman world records?
luc van lierde’s ironman world record was set in 1997 at challenge roth.
it took 14 years to improve it.
