This year's Wisconsin's Ironman had 2,200 competitors in its field. The event is one of the most grueling in the world - 2.4 miles of swimming, followed by 112 miles of cycling, then a 26.2 mile run. Professor Thomas Brunold finished in 10th place with a time of 9:14:34, approximately 9 minutes faster then he predicted. Thomas won first in his age group and was the #1 placed amateur. Thomas has also placed 5th, 6th & 8th place in previous years' Wisconsin Ironman competitions. Congratulations Thomas!!
