MADISON 70.3 - Four of the Top 6 women, five if you count DANI FISCHER, at this morning's Ironman Madison 70.3 were Minnesotans.

Fischer, formerly of Rochester, now of suburban Indianapolis, took the women's overall title, bettering the 2nd place efforts she posted in the first two editions of this event. And thanks in part to hospitable weather, unlike in 2018 and 2017, Dani's time was record-setting. Her 4:34:24 over the challenging route bettered DANI VSETECKA's previous CR by 11:24.

Minnesotans rounded out the podium, as GABY BUNTEN silvered in 4:46:48, and BECKY YOUNGBERG took the bronze in 4:51:17, which lowered the women's Masters record, set by former pro Jessica Jacobs, by 5:33. 

Youngberg has raced thrice this season, winning once and podiuming in the other two events. She set Masters Records each time.

The fifth and sixth spots were earned by 2019 Minnesota Rookie of the Year frontrunner PAIGE SCHULZ (4:52:03 - photo) and the University of Minnesota's premier swim-bike-runner RACHEL ZILINSKAS (4:56:34)....

 

Three Minnesota guys cracked their gender's Top 15. Leading the way was three-time Team Minnesota member JORDAN ROBY (8th in 4:20:17), followed by JOE ADRIAENS (12th in 4:27:25) and DAN ARLANDSON (13th IN 4:28:09).
