Race Coverage

State Record!

Michelle-Kona.gifIronman World Championships - Last Friday a guy contacted us wanting to know what Minnesota amateur woman has the fastest time at Kona. We dug around a bit and believe that Catherine Lee was our state's fastest female finisher (amateur) at the Super Bowl of Triathlon. In 2010, she turned in a 10:28:27.

The guy asked his question because he assumed that whatever that time was, it was destined to be lowered by one or more of the fast Minnesota women that were scheduled to race on the Big Island on Saturday. We agreed with him that a new state record would be set.

Well, it's Sunday morning. Were we right? Did any of our state's women unseat Cathy Lee?

Oh yeah!

As most of you already know, Michelle Andres turned in a career performance yesterday. Her time was a jaw-dropping 9:50:23, which placed her 3rd in the...

35-39W AG and 13th female amateur overall. She now owns the two fastest women's IM times in Minnesota history.

Michelle wasn't the only Loon Stater to better Cathy Lee's 2010 mark of 10:28. Emily Kratz went six minutes faster than that yesterday (10:22:08).

MTN congratulates all of this year's Iron men and women, especially those who raced in yesterday's World Championships. RESULTS
