Well, if one person can break the 8-hour barrier then so can another! Just two weeks ago Ronnie Schildknecht became the first official sub-8 ironman on North American soil at the Ford Ironman Florida and at today's Ford Ironman Arizona Eneko Llanos went a whole four seconds quicker! For a while it looked as though Paul Amey might take the victory but in the second half of the run Llanos proved the stronger and despite a last minute surge which brought him up to within five seconds Amey dropped two minutes in the closing couple of miles which although it only gave him second and put him just outside the magic sub-8 is, subject to the statistics meister's confirmation, now the best Home Nations time beating Tom Lowe's 8:11:31 by a whisker over ten minutes. And, Scott Neyedli had an excellent race as well turning in a 08:29:03 which gave him 11th

Leanda Cave ran a solid race which saw he second in off the bike behind Amanda Stevens who she rapidly dropped on the the run and then shrugged off all potential challenges from Linsey Corbin and Meredith Kessler to notch up the first official Ironman win of her career in 8:49:00 - good enough for 25th overall. More updates will be needed in the statistics pages there as well! Fraser Cartmell continued the great British day out in Arizona finishing just behind her in 08:50:14. Corbin also went sub-9 but Kessler missed out by just 14 seconds with her third place.
