Llanos

Eneko Llanos, of Spain, has won the inaugural Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas in a time of 8:08:20 setting a new course record....of course.

Llanos beat Timothy O'Donnell of Boulder Colorado racing his first Ironman by just over a minute.

In third position on the podium was Aussie Luke Bell in a time of 8:12:22.

“I could not relax until the last straight,” Llanos said. “It was a tough race. But I believed and I’m happy.”

On the women's side of the race it was Brit Catriona Morrison who took the top podium position in a time of 8:57:51...beating Kelly Williams of Austin, Texas and Belgiun triathlete Sofie Goos across the finishline.

"Just one foot in front of the other all the way," said Morrison. "I’m so happy. I’ve spent the past five weeks in Texas and I have never felt more welcome.

“I believe anything is possible with hard work and effort and determination," she added. "It was just a case of never panicking and finishing in one piece."
