Live commentary Ironman Hawaii: Patrick Lange fights for the win over Kona

Ironman Hawaii in the live ticker

1.30 pm: Before you start Patrick Long criticized the new format at Ironman Hawaii. The organizer is allowing twice as many participants this year after the 2021 and 2022 races were cancelled. “I thought about it for a long time, but I found more and more negative factors for the doubling,” Lange told the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung”.

For example, there are more than 5000 participants instead of about 2500 participants at the start. “If you look at how prices have fared here in Kona, if you look at the incredible traffic that’s been here a week before the start, it just can’t be right to hold this event over two days.”

For the race on Saturday (6:25 p.m.), Lange holds back as usual. “I’m just not the character with strong announcements and declarations of war. I’m not. And it’s really hard for me to position myself against the others. All I know is that I won the race twice and I’m hiding I don’t have to. I have already proven that I can win in Hawaii. Others have yet to do that,” Lange said in the “Welt”.

Ironman Hawaii: Jan Frodeno is missing due to hip inflammation

1 o’clock in the afternoon.: Two-time Ironman Champion Jan Frodeno won’t be there this year. The winner of 2015, 2016 and 2019 suffers from a hip infection. He wants to end his career in 2023. “I hope the whole thing will take a turn here,” Frodeno explained to the “world”.

“Of course you can talk yourself into anything, and you should. But for me, the thing is, I actually work with ups and downs. I don’t even know how many comebacks I’ve had, but it’s my big and solid one goal to to have another.” He would prefer to “conjure up a very, very big race. Because it hurts my soul.”

Ironman Hawaii: last start for Sebastian Kienle

12.30pm: Sebastian Kienle (Ironman winner 2014) will compete in Ironman Hawaii for the last time in his career. “I can approach the race quite freely now,” explains the 38-year-old. “But actually that’s not fun either, because that’s why I’m certainly not in the top favorites here.”

“But I’m not completely without a chance,” Kienle says in a dpa interview. In 2019 he came third. “There have never been so many athletes who can be said to have a chance of winning the race. I am still one of them, even though my chance is somewhere around five percent.”

12.00: Hello and welcome to the live ticker on Sportsillustrated.de. The men’s race (professionals) starts on October 8 (Saturday) at 6:25 PM. In addition to top favorite Kristian Blummenfelt from Norway is also a two-time champion of Hawaii Patrick Long (2017 & 2018) at the start.

American Sodaro wins women’s race

American Chelsea Sodaro has won the Ironman Hawaii. In her first race in Hawaii, the 33-year-old won after a 3.86km swim, 180.2km bike and 42.2km run ahead of Britain’s Lucy Charles-Barclay and Germany’s Anne Haug.

Laura Philipp, another German, came in fourth. Without the time penalty on the racing bike, Philipp probably would have done even better. For Hawaii winner Sodara, it is the most important success of her career. The American became a mother a year and a half ago and after her baby break in June she participated for the first time in a triathlon in Hamburg.
