Ironman Copenhagen 2021 (Aug 22nd) – Seedings

IMCPH Updates:

  • August 18th: The startlist on the IM Copenhagen website also lists #58 – Cameron Wurf. He’ll certainly add color to the race, but he’s also already Kona qualified so he won’t factor in the race for the Kona slots.
  • August 17th: In the absence of an officially updated startlist, I have added “*FRA*” to the athletes who have raced in Frankfurt and are therefore unlikely to start. However, some could still be chasing a Kona slot, so it’s not certain that they will be a DNS. I have also removed a few *’s from the athletes who were on the Frankfurt list but didn’t race.

    Hi! Ivan Tutukin is now representing Kazakhstan.

  2. Fran August 16, 2021 at 3:06 pm #

    Hi! will you update after Frankfurt? many top contenders have raced there and will not be showing up in CPH

    • Thorsten August 17, 2021 at 8:50 am #

      There are a lot of athletes where I agree that their start is “unlikely”. However, there isn’t an official update of the startlist. Until then, I have updated the *’s (another race within 8 days) with *FRA* for those who have at least started Frankfurt. We will see who will turn up in Copenhagen.

  3. Javier August 17, 2021 at 10:06 am #

    I think David Plese raced Frankfurt and came 11th right?

    • Thorsten August 17, 2021 at 10:09 am #

      Thanks, updated.
