Javier Gomez (ESP) and Daniela Ryf (CHE) won what many call the most competitive triathlonevent in the world, the Ironman 70:3 world championships in Mont Tremblant, Canada. Gomez won the race after a front and back war where he secured the win after pulling of the fastest run of the day. Daniela Ryf also had tough competition but secured her win early on the bikeleg.


The Ironman 70:3 world championships is tough to win and if you don´t belive me? Just take a look at the last years previous winners. The world championships started out in 2006 and has been somewhat a bridge between long- and shortdistance triathletes with both olympians and longdistanceexperts winning. The first winners back in 2006 were Craig Alexander and Samantha Mc Glone and many of the winners since then has gone on to win the IM worldchampionships at Kona or other IM-events.

There should be no question about the importance of winning this race. To give you some idea here is all the winners since 2006 up to today.

Just a week after the ITU grand finale in Edmonton it was racetime again for many of the european triathletes. It turned out to be an russian affair in Romania with russian athletes taking 4 out of 6 medals in the Olympic distance race.


Due to warm weather and windy conditions the swimstart was moved from the Black Sea to a nearby smaller lake. The swim turned out to be quite technical with waves on two-loop course. This made it hard for anyone to break free from the rest of the group and that turned out to be true for the bikeleg as well. Both in the mens and the womens race it all came down to who was the better runner. In the mens race Russia took first and second place with Portugal on third and in the womens race Ukraine took first with Russia an second and third place.

The weather was hot and humid with a temperature of 26 degress celsius.

Island to Island is to be considered as one of the toughest oneday races in the world. It includes 65 kilometers of trailrunning and 10 kilometers of open waterswimming in cold water with strong currents in the archipelago of Stockholm Sweden. A total of 75 km in a beutiful but brutal enviroment.

This year 22 countries were represented at the start 05:50 in the morning. 8 hours 16 minutes and 12 seconds later Team Milebreaker/Öppet hav finished to become new worldchampions in recordtime.

Ö TILL Ö is a unique race in a unique environment. Teams of two race together from island to island (Ö till Ö). The teams swim between the islands and run on them. The total distance is 75 kilometres of which 10 km are swimming and 65 km are running.

The course starts by the Seglarhotel in Sandhamn and finishes at Utö Värdshus on Utö. The course passes the big islands of Runmarö, Nämdö and Ornö. The running sections are beautiful. At times the course goes through the wood without trail but most of the time the course is on trail or gravelled roads. The swim sections are between 100 and 1600 metres long.

To manage to finish the course from dawn to dusk demands that the competitors are fit and that they have practiced a good technique to be quick in and out of the water as there are as many as 38 in and outs.

The Seglarhotel in Sandhamn and Utö Värdshus on Utö guarantee a high quality prerace scene and a very good finishing environment. We will have spectator spots and food stations at some well- known restaurants on the islands along the way. There are safety boats, medical staff and race marshalls along the course to try to guarantee everyones safety.

Just when you thougt you´ve heard them all and knows them all, someone is always coming up with something new. When the swedish swimmer/triathlete Jonas Colting finished his latest swimproject “Sverigesimmet” (Swimming across Sweden from Stockholm to Gothenburg 600 km) last week we at least thougt it would take a while before someone would come up with a new idea that would excite us. We were wrong!

Ben Hopper want’s to be an oceanswimmer, but not one of those who crosses a channel somewhere and then say they crossed that ocean. No, Ben wants to swim ACROSS the ocean. His plan is to swim from Senegal to Brazil across the Atlantic sea in 90 days. He is only stopping to eat and sleep and if he is drifting while resting he will make upp for those miles as well. The actual distance is around 3200 km which means he has to swim about 35 km open ocean each day for three months.

Ben hopes to start his quest in 2015. Triscore will report from his recordattempt.

Dutch athlete Ferry Weertman won his second gold medal at the 2014 European Championships this week. He first won the 10 km race ahead of Thomas Lurz of Germany and Evgenii Drattcev of Russia. His second gold came in the 5 km team pursuit together with the women´s 10 km champion Sharon van Rouwendaal and teammate Marcel Schouten.


The Dutch swimmers were outstanding at the 2014 games culminating with the team pursuit where the dutch trio beat Greece (2:nd) and Germany (3:rd).

Ferry whos had his real breakthrough this season will for sure be a true contender in the next few years. His 10 km time of 1.49.56 is one of the fastest times ever on 10 km and would give him 1493 triscorepoints if he would register.

After nearly perfect races where both athletes won comfortably after being in the lead most of the race, Horst Reichel and Leanda Cave can titulate themselves as winners of Ironman Sweden.

Horst won six minutes ahead of Viktor Zyemtsev (UKR) who were six seconds ahead of Tom Lowe (GBR).

Leanda Cave was just outstanding today giving no other any chance whatsoever. Being first out of the water she then just expanded her lead the rest of the way. Leanda won in 8:56:50.
