Four Spaniards have managed to get down from 8 hours in distance Ironman, Iván Raña, Víctor del Corral, Eneko Llanos and Javier Gómez Noya
The Galician Ivan Frog he has "the best Spanish brand" in an Ironman distance triathlon, he managed it in 2014, in Klagenfurt (Austria) with a time of 7: 48: 43 what places him as the fastest 5º triathlete in IM of all time in that moment.
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 its debut in the distance stopped the chrono in a time 7: 56: 38. Finally we must also quote Eneko Plains, fourth Spanish triathlete and first to break the barrier of the 8 hours. It was at 2011 at the Ironman in Arizona.
|1||Iva Raña||7: 48: 43||IM Austria||2014|
|2||Víctor del Corral||7: 53: 12||IM Florida||2013|
|4||Eneko Llanos||7: 55: 16||IM Vitoria||2019|
|3||Javier Gómez Noya||7: 56: 38||IM Cairns||2018|
|5||Clemente Alonso||8: 00: 42||IM Arizona||2014|
|6||Miquel Blanchart||8: 02: 03||IM Barcelona||2017|
|7||Hektor Llanos||8: 11: 36||IM Frankfurt||2008|
|8||Richard Calle||8: 15: 30||CH Barcelona||2013|
|9||Marcel Zamora||8: 15: 37||CH Barcelona||2009|
|10||Alejandro Santamaria||8: 17: 05||Full Vitoria||2018|
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 talking about "Best times" in triathlon, whether short, medium or long distance, we must always bear in mind that in our sport the distances are not approved as it is an Olympic pool, a velodrome, an athletics track or a race in homologated route, therefore, it is not correct to speak in terms of "world record" or similar. The end of the following article is merely informative since many of our readers like to know who are the "fastest" triathletes
