Chelsea Sodaro puts together a magnificent performance to crown herself the 2022 Ironman World Champion

Oct 07, 2022

Chelsea Sodaro who made her debut on the Big Island claimed an impressive clear-cut victory at the IRONMAN World Championship. The BMC Pro athlete becomes the first American winner since Paula Newby-Fraser in 1996.

After finishing the swim in seventh position, Chelsea was more than four minutes behind Lucy Charles-Barclay. She rode her Timemachine 01 Disc to a fourth-place finish on the bike in 4:36:11, but she was more than five and a half minutes behind the former world champion, Daniela Ryf. Chelsea began the race with a goal in mind and set a fast pace, which allowed her to catch up to and then consequently pass Daniel Ryf approximately around 6km into the marathon. Then, at kilometer 13, Sodaro overtook Charles-Barclary at a speed that was unmatchable by anyone else in the race. In the end, Chelsea was able to secure the victory with an astounding time of 8:33:46, making her the first American to win on debut at the Kona Ironman World Championships.

Stay ahead of time with the Timemachine 01 Disc and its highly sophisticated aerodynamics, adjustability and component integration.

  1. Chelsea Sodaro (USA) – 8:33:46
  2. Lucy Charles-Barclay (GBR) – 8:41:37
  3. Anne Haug (GER) – 8:42:22

Magical day

"I think that I thought I could win this race one day maybe, but I did not expect that to be today. I am super grateful for the people getting me here. Today was one of those magical days when everything comes together. It is pretty special to be here at the finish line with my daugther and be able to celebrate such an incredible victory".
