8. Eneko Llanos

The 34-year-old Llanos ran his way into the record books at Ironman Arizona when he became just the second person to break the eight-hour barrier in a North American Ironman. The Spaniard’s 7:59:38 finish—which ended with a 2:46:09 marathon—capped off a season which also included a win at the Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas in May as well as a third-place finish at the XTERRA World Championships in October.
