Kona 2018 Qualifying Before the Final July Races

This post looks at Kona Qualifying before the remaining July races:

Date Type Race Points
22-Jul IM Ironman Lake Placid – WPRO only P-2000
28-Jul 70.3 70.3 Santa Rosa P-750
29-Jul IM Ironman Switzerland P-2000
29-Jul IM Ironman Hamburg P-2000
29-Jul IM Ironman Canada (Whistler) – MPRO only P-2000

The following analysis is built on the available start lists posted by Ironman and assumes that there are not going to be any late entries.

Women’s Qualifying

There are 28 Kona points slots (not counting the Automatic Qualifiers) for the female Pros in July. (There will be another 7 in August.) Here is a graphical view of the athletes who I consider to be safe for a July slot:

KPRWomen

The following table lists the athletes currently occupying the last qualifying slots:

Rank Athlete Points Races Comments
(5) Heather Jackson 6.975 (NV) 1+2 registered for IM Lake Placid
Liz Lyles 6.325 2+1 expected to decline (announced retirement)
(17) Annabel Luxford 5.215 (NV) 1+1 registered for IM Switzerland
22 Helle Frederiksen 4.845 1+2
23 Lisa Huetthaler 4.680 2+2
24 Tine Deckers 4.490 3+1
25 Anne Haug 4.480 1+2
26 Jodie Robertson 4.340 1+2 registered for IM Lake Placid & 70.3 Santa Cruz
27 Melanie Burke 4.035 2+1 registered for IM Switzerland
28 Sara Svensk 4.035 2+2 registered for IM Switzerland & IM Hamburg

As you can see, I’m not counting Liz Lyles as she has announced her retirement and is expected to decline her slot. (The “formal decline” can only happen after the end of July qualifying when Ironman asks athletes to accept their slots.) There are also Heather Jackson (registered for IM Lake Placid) and Annabel Luxford (registered for IM Switzerland) who still need an Ironman finish to be eligible for a points slot, but they should be able to do so in their races. With these reasonable assumptions, Sara Svensk currently occupies the last qualifying spot with 4.035 points. (She has the same number of points as Melanie Burke but is behind on the tie-breaker top score.) Also, Helle Frederiksen is “safe” for a slot, there are only six athletes with a chance to pass her in the remaining races so she can’t fall further back than to 28th points place.

The following table lists what each of the athletes who are on one of the start lists and who can still overtake Sara will need, even if that is probably not going to be enough for securing a slot (i.e. even if one can pass Sara, there are likely others that leap further ahead). In brackets I have added the (result) that will be needed to be quite certain of a slot (regardless of where others may finish, “n/a” meaning that even with a win a slot is not assured).

Men’s Qualifying

There are 40 Kona points slots (not counting the Automatic Qualifiers) for the male Pros in July. (There will be another 10 in August.) Here is a quick view of the athletes that I consider safe for a July slot:

KPRMen

The following table lists the male Pros in the last qualifying ranks:

Rank Athlete Points Races Comments
(7) James Cunnama 6.500 1+2 (NV) registered for IM Hamburg
Boris Stein 3.920 1+2 (NV) not racing in July, looking to validate in Copenhagen
(28) Bart Aernouts 3.865 1+2 (NV) registered for IM Hamburg
29 Romain Guillaume 3.795 2+2
30 Luke McKenzie 3.715 2+1
31 Matt Chrabot 3.630 1+2
32 Marino Vanhoenacker 3.600 2+0 unknown if interested in a slot, registered for IM Canada

35 Callum Millward 3.465 2+2 registered for IM Canada
36 Denis Chevrot 3.465 2+2
37 Will Clarke 3.445 1+2 registered for IM Hamburg
38 Simon Cochrane 3.420 3+1
39 Mike Phillips 3.390 2+2 registered for IM Switzerland
40 Jan van Berkel 3.390 3+0 registered for IM Switzerland

James Cunnama, Boris Stein and Bart Aernouts still need an Ironman finish to be eligible for a slot. James and Bart are registered for IM Hamburg, and “just finishing” will secure a points slot for them. However, Boris has been injured shortly before IM France, he is not going to race before the end of July. Therefore I am including James and Bart but not Boris in my “points ranks”. This means that currently Jan van Berkel occupies the last direct qualifying slot, but it’s safe to assume that a number of athletes are going to score and that more than 3.390 points will be needed. There are a few more uncertainties, for example it is unclear if Cam Brown or Marino Vanhoenacker are even interested in a Kona slot (they might decline) and whether Terenzo Bozzone is going to accept his slot (he is still recovering from being hit by a truck while training on the bike).

There is a theoretical chance for the cutoff to occur as high as 3.890 points, but that requires a large number of pretty improbably race outcomes. As shown in the graph above I therefore consider everyone down to Cam Brown (at 3.840 points) to be safe, and every athlete who is able to pass Cam is going to receive in a slot unless some really weird things occur.

The next table lists what each of the athletes who are on one of the start lists and who can still get to at least 3.400 points will need, even if that is probably not going to be enough for securing a slot (i.e. even if one can pass that mark, there are likely others that leap further ahead). In brackets I have added the (result) that will be needed to be quite certain of a slot (regardless of where others may finish, “n/a” meaning that even with a win a slot is not assured).

Ironman UK 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMUK LogoCourse Conditions 

This year’s bike course was shortened by about 27km (or 17 miles) because wildfires made parts of the planned course unusable or dangerous. This resulted in bike times about 45 minutes quicker than normal.The swim was four minutes slower (non-wetsuit?) with a “normal” run, resulting in overall times about 40 minutes quicker than in previous years, making expected times hard to reliably calculate, so the “difference to expected” should be considered more of an indication.

Kona Qualifying

Here’s the athletes that have improved their Kona slot chances in Bolton:

  • Safe: Joe Skipper (Lucy Gossage was already safe before the race)
  • Close (but probably not enough): Camilla Lindholm, Simon Cochrane

The other athletes that scored well are still too far behind the projected cutoffs to have a realistic chance for a slot without racing again.

Kona Qualifying

There is a couple of athletes on the start lists that are already safe for Kona: Cameron Wurf, Ruedi Wild, Kaisa Sali, and Lisa Roberts. At least some of them will still toe the line in Zürich.

A number of other athletes look for points to secure their slot, here is what they’ll need to get above the projected cutoffs:

  • Just finish: Annabel Luxford
  • 7th or better: Melanie Burke
  • 6th or better: Mike Phillips, Jan van Berkel, Philipp Koutny
  • 4th or better: Jeremy Jurkiewicz, Ronnie Schildknecht, Sara Svensk
  • 2nd or better: David Plese, Miguel Blanchard
  • Win: Johann Ackermann, Sven Riederer

The final slot allocation will be getting close with the last few races, with the results above the athletes at least have a chance (even if not a guarantee) for a slot.
