Always Up-to-date Kona 2019 Startlist

NewImageHere is the start list for Kona 2019. I will update when athletes withdraw from the race.

For details about Pro qualifying and where each athlete qualified, check out the “Kona 2019 Qualifying” page.

I provide a lot more details on the race and the participants in my free “Kona Rating Report” – you can order the Report here or by clicking “Get Kona Report” in the sidebar on the right.

Updates

  • On October 6th, Terenzo Bozzone withdrew from the race (see his Instagram post), citing an Achilles injury that is on the mend but just not good enough to be competitive on the run.
  • On September 26th, Skye Moench posted on Instagram that she’s been in a bike crash. Her injuries (among others a concussion, shattered elbow, and broken clavicle) won’t allow her to race in Kona this year.
  • On September 17th, Kyle Buckingham announced on Instagram that because of visa problems he won’t be able to race Kona. He has instead switched his focus to IM Italy and IM Barcelona.
  • In early July, Frederik van Lierde announced that he will not race Kona but is instead going to focus on 70.3 Worlds in Nice in early September and then IM Barcelona in October.

To the athletes with an injury, fingers crossed for a speedy and full recovery!

Injury List

Not all Kona preps are going according to plan, and some athletes are open about the problems they are facing in getting ready for Kona:

  • Mirinda Carfrae and Tim O’Donnell posted an update on their YouTube channel. The title of the episode says it all: “I broke my elbow and Tim hurt his foot“. Both are still planning to race Kona, even if Rinny thinks her swim will suffer.
