six Spaniards have managed to lose 8 hours in Ironman distance, Iván Raña, Víctor del Corral, Eneko Llanos, Javier Gómez Noya, Gustavo Rodríguez and Pedro Andújar.
The Galician Ivan Frog He has “the best Spanish brand” in an Ironman distance triathlon, he achieved it in 2014, in Klagenfurt (Austria) with a time of 7: 48: 43 which is placed as the 11º fastest triathlete in IM of all time at that time.
The second position is for Víctor del Corral with 7: 53: 12 achieved in the Ironman of Florida and the third place in this "unofficial" ranking would be for Javier Gómez Noya, that in his distance debut he stopped the clock in a while 7: 56: 38.
Finally we must also quote Eneko Plains, fourth Spanish triathlete and first to break the 8 hour barrier. It was in 2011 at the Ironman in Arizona and in 2019 he achieved his best time at the IRONMAN Vitoria
The best Spanish times 10 in IRONMAN
|1||7:48:43||Iva Raña||IM Austria 2014|
|2||7:53:12||Víctor del Corral||IM Florida 2013|
|3||7:55:16||Eneko Llanos||IM Vitoria 2019|

Eneko together with Ivan Frog they are the only ones who have downloaded 2 times from 8h in Ironman. Eneko is also the Spanish with the most sub 8h20. If the ranking was only brands in Ironman possibly Eneko would have 5 or 6 of the best times.
We must also mention that Javier Gómez Noya is so far the "best newcomer" Spanish in distance Ironman, the only one to do it coming down from the 8 hours in the past Ironman of Cairns
On the other hand, mention that the best brand on Spanish soil corresponds to Miquel Blanchart, with 8: 02: 03 achieved at the Ironman in Barcelona last year.
To conclude, we want to invite readers to see if there are any errors in the ranking and we need some triathletes who do not hesitate to write us to solve it, since there are many races and many athletes. Thank you very much.
NOTE: When it comes to talking about "Best times" in triathlon, whether short, medium or long distance, we must always bear in mind that in our sport distances are not approved as is an Olympic swimming pool, a velodrome, an athletics track or an approved road race, therefore, it is not correct to speak in terms of “world record” or similar. The end of the following article is purely informative as many of our readers like to know who the "fastest" triathletes are.
