Ironman World Championships Recap
World class athletes took on the prestigious Ironman World Championships earlier this month in Kona, Hawaii. The long awaited event showcases the skills of the most elite triathletes on a world stage. This event demands the most out of competitors with a 3.86 km swim, 180 km bike, and 42.2 km run. Two of the most notable finishes came from Rotor athletes Anne Haug and Daniela Ryf.
Rotor athlete Anne Haug of Germany held steady through the race and earn herself bronze at the Ironman World Championships. After falling behind on the swim, Haug crushed the 180 km bike to gain time on the leaders and earn herself a spot on the podium.
6x time Ironman World Champion and Rotor athlete Daniela Ryf finished 8th on the day but had one of the fastest bike splits by almost 5 minutes. Choosing to go for Rotor's carbon cranks and full aero package, Ryf put in a blistering 4:36:11 to put pressure on the leaders.
