Daniela Ryf, last minute entry after her hypothermia DNF in Frankfurt was very close to make it a truly historic day. Still short on some training, her 8:22:04 (0:49:10 - 0:02:20 - 4:31:29 - 0:01:28 - 2:57:40) followed by Carrie Lester and Yvonne Van Vlerken brought her in striking distance to Chrissie Wellington's 8:18:13 (2011) record.
