Record-breaking time by Ali bodes well for Kona

Updated: 2 days ago

Alistair Brownlee moved into the record books with his victory at IRONMAN Kalmar at the weekend.


After a first half of the year blighted by injury and illness, it was his last chance to book a spot at the 2022 IRONMAN World Championship at Kona – and he grabbed it in some style.

A 44:38 swim, 4:09:53 bike and 2:40:46 run combined for a total time of 7:38:48 including T1 and T2.



That makes him the first male athlete from Great Britain to go under 7:40 in a full-distance race (we’re not counting Joe Skipper’s 6:47:36 at Sub7!).
