Dr. Amanda Stevens set the all-time fastest Ironman swim split this year with a 45:04 at the Ironman European Championships in Frankfurt. This comes as no surprise as Stevens was first out of the water for the pro women at last year’s Ironman World Championships. In 2012, Amanda has had her most successful season of racing to date, winning Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs and placing 2nd at Ironman 70.3 Kansas and Ironman UK. An excellent swimmer, Stevens will look to perfect her run and bike at the World Championships this year. Stevens is a licensed medical doctor and resides in Colorado Springs with her husband Randy.
