Full GB & Ireland Pro/Age Group results - Kona 2015: WOMEN

In the lead up to the 2015 Ironman World Championships in Kona we highlighted the full listing of GB & Ireland entrants who had made it to the big island of Hawaii.

So, how did they all do? First up, here are the results for the ladies. All of them.

The fastest British women in Kona this year - as she has been for three consecutive years now - courtesy of 2nd / 3rd / 2nd place finishes over that time was Rachel Joyce. It was an interesting race for Rachel. Out with the main group of swimmers as is typical, in the first half of the bike ride she was uncharacteristically off the pace of the lead pack and forced to ride at her own tempo. She managed that well, and strong second half brought her back into contention .She reached T2 well inside the top ten, before a typically strong run saw her take another podium finish at the Ironman World Championships.

Saturday would prove a tough day for both Jodie Swallow and Leanda Cave, and yet both can take huge pride in how they dealt with the challenges they faced. Despite missing a significant amount of training during the summer following tests indicating significant signs of over-training, Swallow returned to Kona and raced to win. One minute clear out of the water, she biked aggressively to reach T2 in second place to winner Daniela Ryf, before that lack of work over the summer caught up with her on the run course. She'll be back next year, saying "I'll attack the same but I'll be ready". For 2012 Champion Cave, a big bike crash left her covered in road rash, leaving her licking her wounds (literally).

While there was disappointment for Swallow and Cave, the strength-in-depth of British Ironman racing was reflected in the performances of Susie Cheetham (sixth) and Lucy Gossage (tenth). Susie and Lucy were in the prize money ($16,000 and $10,000 respectively), and will also return home with a coveted Umeke trophy. For Lucy, she can add that to the Age-Group one she won in 2010! Sixth is especially impressive from Cheetham in her first race on the island. With a much improved swim and scope for further improvement on the bike, Cheetham could be serious podium contender over the next few years.

We've already highlighted the GB Age-Group podium finishers in depth HERE - remember, for Age Groupers in Kona the podium is five deep, while for the Professionals the top ten take home both prize money and an Umeke trophy.

Presented below are all of the GB and Ireland female results firstly by category/bib no., and then in the second table ordered by overall finish time.
