I think the majority of those times are submitted by crossfitters and other gym rats.
There was a monthly league set by C2 UK last year with a different challeng each month. One of our girls was number 3 on the leaderboard in November (off the top of my head). She's good, but far from elite.
Genuinely elite times are hard to come by but consider that GB guys are pulling around 5 mins 50 and below for 2km. Just browsing now I saw a guy on the C2 forum posting a 5k PB of 16:31, his 2k was only 6:28.
