In his very first full Ironmanrace Tim Don took no prisoners as he shrugged off all opponents to win his first Ironman event. Not only did he win, he won in a world class startingfield including eight time Ironman winner, Timo Bracht (GER) and others. Tim won the very first edition of Ironman Mallorca in 8:34:02.

 

For those who knows triathlon Tim Don is no stranger. He has won three 70:3 races this year and placed third in the 70:3 world championships. Tim has as a solid background as anyone with a personal best of 3.46.60 on 1500 m that would be envyed by most runners. He has competed in the olympics and World Championships and is a regular on the podium, but still winning an Ironman event in his debut must be seen as an incredible preformance. Tim secured the win by finishing the race with a 2:52 marathon time and crossing the finishline at 8:34:02 more than four minutes ahead of Miguel Angel Fidalgo in second.

 

In the womens race Eimear Mullen had a terrible swim finishing in 55:13 more than five minutes after Norways Mette Pettersen Moe 49:52. But Eimar would make up for lost time and finish the race with the fastest run in the womens division. This would be Eimears seventh win of the season.
