German triathlete Jan Frodeno won the 2015 Ironman World Championship today in Kona, HI, with a blazing time of 8:14:40 (swim 50:50, bike 4:27:28, run 2:52:22), making him the first ever to win an Olympic gold medal (2008), the 2015 Ironman 70.3 World Championships, and Ironman World Championships. He finished ahead of German Andreas Raelert (8:17:42) and American Tim O'Donnell (8:18:25). [all results]

For the Women, it was Switzerland's Daniela Ryf winning in 8:57.57, using the fastest bike split of the day (4:52) and a solid run to build a 12 minute margin over her competitors and improve on her 2nd place finish in her debut last year. She was also the 2015 Ironman 70.3 World Champion, so both world champs doubled this year.
