After last year’s record-friendly race, the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championship that took place on Saturday once again delivered the kind of conditions it’s known for – a day featuring high winds and humidity.

The 41st year of the race saw a victorious return for Germany’s Jan Frodeno and an unexpected upset in the women’s race with Anne Haug (DE), dethroning four-time defending champion, Daniela Ryf (SWI) who had not lost an IRONMAN or IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship race since 2016.
