Throwback: Chrissie W. banging out a 2:48:54

Roth, July 2010 – as I was crewing for a mate I had the chance to shadow Chrissie Wellington during the end of her run portion at the Challenge Roth. As I was following her on the bike, I recorded the above clip and uploaded it. As the big classic is about to go down Sunday week, I got reminded of this little piece of sport history.

Above and beyond being surprised that this clip has more than 30.000 clicks by now, I’m still astonished by Chrissies performance that day. She jogged a incredible fast and steady 2:48:54 marathon to finished in a time 8:19:13 which still stands as the world best time over the Ironman distance.

Let’s see what Jan Frodeno delivers as he attacks Andi Raelerts 7:41:33 Men’s WR on the fast course round Franconia.
