Kona Qualifying

As IM France is one of the last races before the July cutoff, there are a number of athletes looking for points to secure a July slot. Here is a brief overview on “who needs what” on the male side (most of them already have four results in their total, so improving their total won’t be easy):

  • Fred Van Lierde has already secured his AQ slot.
  • Fifth (720): Fredrik Croneborg, Kaito Tohara
  • Fourth (960): Alessandro Degasperi, Daniel Fontana
  • Second (1600): Cameron Wurf, Eneko Llanos, Denis Chevrot

The list of potential Kona qualifiers is a bit shorter on the female side:

  • Annabel Luxford (4.230) – needs at least 8th (305) or better, 6th (540) to be safe
  • Carrie Lester (3.535) – needs 4th (960) or better and  third (1.280) to be safe
  • Lisa Roberts (2.140) will only have chances for a rolldown slot, even with a win

Nikki Bartlett is probably only on the list as a backup for her main target race at IM UK a week before.
