FRANKFURT —

Timo Bracht of Germany has won the men's race at the Frankfurt Ironman and compatriot Sandra Wallenhorst took the women's division on a day in which temperatures climbed to 86 degrees.

Bracht completed the 2.36-mile swim, 111.85-mile ride and 26.22-mile run in a course record of 7 hours, 59 minutes, 15 seconds on Sunday - shaving 39 seconds off the mark set last year by Australian Chris McCormack, who finished third.

Spaniard Eneko Llanos was second in 8:00:05, and McCormack, the 2007 Hawaii Ironman champion, finished in 8:02:49.

Wallenhorst won the women's event in 8:58:08, edging world-record holder Yvonne van Vlerken of the Netherlands, who finished in 9:02:20.

German Nicole Leder was third in 9:05:16.
