Don Breaks IRONMAN Record

blueseventy athlete Tim Don set the fastest IRONMAN time ever - 7:40:23 - over the weekend at IRONMAN Brazil. Don put together a stellar 44:16 swim (3.8km), 4:06 bike (180km), and a 2:44:46 marathon run.

Don arrived in Florianópolis on a hot streak with wins already this season at IRONMAN 70.3 Campeche in Mexico and 70.3 Liuzhou in China.

The Brit became the fastest athlete to ever finish an IRONMAN brand race. The former ITU World Champion broke the previous record of 7:44:29, set by Canadian Lionel Sanders at last November’s IRONMAN Arizona. Jan Frodeno is the only man to post a faster full-distance time when we went 7:35:39 at last year's Challenge Roth in Germany. Don earned the South American Championship title victory and sealed a coveted starting spot at the World Championship in October.
