IRONMAN WISCONSIN STUFF...
* DIVISIONAL DOMINATION - Minnesota girls took three of the Top 5 45-49 spots Sunday at the 10th edition of Ironman Wisconsin. Check it out:

Square Lake (Short Course) - Who the heck is Andrea Meyers?
She was the girl who, according to posted results, finished 2nd at Square Lake on Saturday. Apparently, she outraced a bevy of talented women and was beaten only by Becky Youngberg, the winningest girl on the Minnesota multi scene this year. FYI, Becky's 1:30:56 landed her in 5th place overall and was the...

* BOUS STUFF - When Patrick Parish left T2 on Saturday at the 7th annual Best of the US National Championship in Gulf Shores, AL, which incidentally is a totally bitchin' place, he was in 4th place, exactly three minutes behind the leader, Louisiana's Ben Hall, and 2:08 behind eventual winner and Minnesota teammate Matthew Payne. Patrick then laid down a brilliant 33:20 10K split, which allowed him to overtake National Classers Hall, James Haycraft (NC) and Colin Riley (FL) and come within 12 seconds of catching Payne. The Minnesotans were the stars of the show, each blowing the doors off the previous race record (2:02:23) and setting Olympic distances PRs: 1:52:45 & 1:52:57.
The win was the 16th of Payne's young career and 5th of the 2011 season. Matt's race report will post tomorrow.
* TWO-TIMIN' -MTN sends congratulationous kudos to Jamie Heying, who became the Burrito Union 5 & 10 Hour Tri's first two-time solo...

Ironman Wisconsin - Jan Guenther's success at IMOO continues. Arguably one of the Top 2 50+ female triathletes in the World (with Colorado's Ellen Hart), she was the 3rd AGer across the line today behind Michigander Andrea Hutchings, 35, whose 10:13:34 set an amateur record, and Canadian Shannon Kemp, 35 (10:37:35). Jan's remarkable time was 10:42:04 and landed her in 11th place overall.
Today's pro winners were Brazil's Ezequiel Morales (8:45:18) and Jessica Jacobs (9:41:03) of Maylene, Alabama. This was Jacobs' 2nd Ironman victory. She also won IM Florida in 2010 in 9:07:49.
