Rachel Joyce was once again 2nd at the Ironman World Championships – a result which whilst not the one she wanted, is still enough to recognise her as one of the superstars of Ironman racing and one of the best of her era. Liz Blatchford also cemented her place in long distance royalty with a 3rd place in 2015. It was Daniela Ryf though who reigned supreme.
In the men’s race, Jan Frodeno confirmed to the world what a supreme triathlete he is, arguably the best ever, whilst three Brits battled it out and finished in the top 15. It was a long, but exciting night and here’s how we saw it plus the top 10 elites and final British elite positions.

No further details at this stage but we have reached out to Ironman UK for further comment.
