    Britta Martin is storming away 4kms to go and a strong chance to smash the race record. She needs to run the final 4kms in 18 minutes to beat Gina Crawford's record of 8:59.24. @IMWA
    The women are zoning in on the final with Britta Martin now with a 2:01 min lead on Mareen Hufe with a further two minutes to Liz Blatchford in third. Yvonne van Vlerken has fallen back to be 7:58 behind and within the grasp of American Beth Geddes, who has come from a long way down in the swim. .

    Britta Martin from New Zealand has smashed the race record to win the women's race in 8:56.33, more than 3 mins inside the previous record held by compatriot Gina Crawford.#IMWA
    Mareen Hufe from Germany finishes runner-up again in Busselton in 8:40.57 and Liz Blatchford third in 9:02.10.
    Now we wait for Jason Shortis, who is just about home in his 83rd and final IRONMAN. Shorto has been a great servant of the sport, quite a character, and it will be an emotional moment for him. Waiting to greet him will be his 16 year old daughter - who was less than one years old, pictured lying on her father's chest, after he earned his first podium finish in an IRONMAN. Perhaps fittingly on a day when internationals dominated, it has allowed this one outstanding Australian a deserved moment in the sun.
