Previous men Ironman Hawaii

On Saturday 14 October will be held a new edition of the Ironman World Championship in Kona (Hawaii) where 58 triathletes in men's category and 40 in women will fight to put their name next to the great athletes of this sport.

Jan Frodeno y Daniela Ryf they are the big favorites, who will try to revalidate their victory for the third consecutive year. As for the Spanish, we have the presence of Eneko Llanos, Ivan Raña y Gurtuze Frades. Carlos López I should also have been in the test, but a cyclist accident He has deprived him of what would have been his debut in Kona.

The big favorite is German Jan Frodeno, Ironman World Champion in 2015-2016 and with victories this year in the Ironman 70.3 Barcelona and Ironman of Austria. Other triathletes that will have to be considered are his compatriot Sebastian Kienle second last year and winner in 2014, he has achieved this year the triathlete with the most KPR points with a victory in the Ironman of Frankfurt, where he won for the third time the title of European Champion.

Patrick Lange (ALE), third last year, has suffered an injury this year that has had several months stopped, and reappeared in Frankfurt with an 2 marathon: 39. He appears in the test with a recent victory in the Ironman 70.3 Reugen in 3: 43.

Ben Hofman (USA), fourth last year, got his classification in the Ironman South Africa down from the 8 hours, will participate for the eighth time in this test, where he will fight to be on the podium.

The British David McNamee, in 2017 he was third in South Africa this year and has won the Ironman 70.3 Dublin, Ironman 70.3 Mallorca and Challenge Salou.

Tim Odonnel, sixth last year and this year winner of the Boulder Ironman will also be one of the triathletes to take into account

The Belgian Frederick Van Lierde champion in 2013, is a great runner and will surely be fighting with the best of the test.

Another to keep in mind will be Lionel Sanders, Skechers athlete, winner of the Arizona Ironman with 7: 44: 29 in 2016 and that has won this year the LD World ITU Championship and Championship Challenge , Ironman 70.3 Sant George and Ironman 70.3 Buenos Aires

Last minute, Tim Don (GB) goes down by a accident. Tim who has been a father this year, came from being third in the Ironman World Championship 70.3 last September and it will be a significant loss for the test

The Spanish

As for the Spanish Ivan Raña It was the best Spanish last year and this 2017 participates for the fifth time in Kona. In 2013, the year of his debut, Ivan got a great 6 position, with 8: 23: 43 and doing the best time in the marathon of all the participants.

This year he has not competed much, since after his ninth place last year he had practically his assured classification, although last August he got a fourth place in the  Ironman 70.3 Zell am See and he's very focused on the test and will fight to be as high as possible.

Eneko Llanos has the best Spanish mark in Kona, with 8:20:50, time that served him to be 2nd in 2008, the best result of a Spanish triathlete in the most important triathlon in the world. Eneko has been the best Spanish in Hawaii 4 times more in these last 10 years, coming down from 8: 30: 00 three times and this time it will be his 12 participation in the race in a season where he got his classification "in extremis".

Eneko this year has been second in the Ironman Austria, fifth in the Ironman France, and eighth in Iroman 70.3 Dublin last august

We will be very attentive to the Spanish participation in the test.
