Cairns Ironman AG records

The Ironman Asia-Pacific Championship Cairns is almost ready to start for another year. The weather always plays a role in this race with very hot, windy and humid conditions beating the field in to submission in 2013. This was followed in 2014 with 24 hours of constant rain soaking the track and making the transitions mud pools. Last year, more wet conditions greeted the athletes with a late afternoon energy sapping dose of humidity. What can be expected this year? Who knows but Mother Nature will play her part in the results - that' for sure.

In case you wanted to know what speeds athletes in your age group are capable of, Yourironguide has the AG records. Some of these times are truly amazing and inspiring. A quick mention has to be made for the only two new records from last year. Liz Blatchford bettered her previous record time to an eye catching 9:11. Levi Maxwell won the 25-29 AG with 8:36:57! That time missed out on the OVERALL podium (including all pro athletes) by just 2 seconds - amazing effort.
