Alisa Fatum Continues Her Brilliant Dominance of the Ice Kilometer

Alisa Fatum Continues Her Brilliant Dominance of the Ice Kilometer

27-year-old veteran and Queen on the Ice Alisa Fatum of Germany broke her own world record in winning her third consecutive IISA world title in the 1000m freestyle in 12:46.04, a time that would have place her 7th overall in the men’s Ice Kilometer. Fatum remains so dominant – similar to Katie Ledecky in the 1500m race in the pool – that she finished over one minute over silver medalist Audrenn Foiny of France and 1 minute 21 seconds over bronze medalist Kyra Wijnker of the Netherlands.

Fatum won the 1000m freestyle at the IISA 3rd World Championship in Murmansk, Russia in 2019 in 13:02:39 in 0.00°C water and -6.3°C air temperatures. She won the 1000m at the IISA 4th World Championships in 2022 in 13:06.18 in Głogów, Poland.

The German phenom just keeps getting faster and faster with age and experience.
