Yesterday we saw the expected debut of Alistair Brownlee in the distance IRONMAN in IM Cork, where with a spectacular foot race tracing 17 minutes got the victory in the test.
In this competition the swimming segment had to be canceled due to bad weather, and although we know that the times of the debut with Javier Gómez Noya last year in Cairns (where he was second) since the test is not the same, without swimming and in bad weather (14 degrees), we do it as a curiosity, especially to look at the race on foot.
That is why we compile the times both races where these two great triathlon figures debuted

Alistair, with his participation in ITU sprint and Olympic events, had hinted that he was preparing to participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, but with his poor performance in Leeds and with this victory in IM we will have to wait to see what he decides already that you have all the options open.
