Germany's Diana Riesler extended her remarkable record-setting run with a fourth straight victory at IRONMAN Malaysia on the stunning island of Langkawi. Riesler was in control, coming out of the two-lap swim two minutes down on American Laurel Wassner but she was quickly in control on the bike. She took the lead at the 12km mark and when she arrived at T2 her advantage was over seven minutes – the only rider to go under 5 hours. All that stood between her and history was a solid marathon, which she achieved with her 3:19:18. Her win in 9:19:01 extended her outstanding record at Langkawi.

Fellow German Mareen Hufe, who is always tough late in the year, took over as the chaser when Wassner’s challenge faded. She got to within six minutes late on the run but never threatened the final result, finishing second in 9:27:23. While Riesler and Hufe are seasoned performers, there was joy for Frenchwoman Manon Genet who earned her first podium in her rookie year as a professional, finishing third in 9:36:14.

Her compatriot Romain Guillaume, like Riesler, was in command throughout the men’s race. The BMC-Etixx Team pro was out of the swim with a group of four. He pushed hard early to establish a break to have an eight minute lead at 100 km and over 10 minutes' buffer off the bike as the only rider to go under 4:30.  He was able to run within himself with a 3:10 run to finish in 8:32:54.

Denmark’s Jens Petersen-Bach showed the best running legs with a 3-hour flat marathon to move through to second less than four minutes behind the winner with German Roman Deisenhofer, in his first year as a pro, scoring his first podium.
