Starzomski shines in Ironman

Bermuda triathlete Cora Lee Starzomski put up a superb performance in the Florida Ironman on Saturday, finishing 408th overall in a men’s and women’s field of close to 3,000.

That placed her 36th among the non-professional females in an event that pushes athletes to the limit with a 2.4 mile swim, 112-mile cycle followed by a full marathon of 26.2 miles.

Her finishing time was 11 hours, four minutes and six seconds.

Winner of a recent triathlon at Clearwater Beach in Bermuda, the Canadian accountant took full advantage of her strongest discipline, swimming, as she emerged from the waters off Panama Beach in 58 minutes and 12 seconds which was fourth fastest among all females.

She then completed the bike route in five hours, 39 minutes, 49 seconds and ran the marathon course in four hours, 10 minutes and 56 seconds.

One of the oldest Ironmen events, Saturday’s race saw records tumble as Ronnie Schildknecht became the first North American to break eight hours, clocking 7:59.42.

American Jessica Jacobs, the defending champion, smashed her own course record in 8:55.10, the 13th fastest time in Ironman history.
