Ironman World Championships Nice 2023 (MPRO, Sept 10th) – Always Up-to-Date Startlist

IM23 WC NiceLogo Medal 1 largeUpdates

  • Aug 17th: A few athletes have announced that they have qualified for Nice but will not start: Cody Beals, Justin Metzler and Jan van Berkel (who ended his career after winning IM Switzerland). I have crossed them out in the lists below.
  • Aug 17th: Kristian Blummenfelt and Gustav Iden have announced racing plans for the fall that do not include Nice. It is very unlikely that they will start, but I will leave them in the list for now.
  • Aug 18th: As reported by Tri247, Arthur Horseau was given a wildcard slot after he was late to the awards ceremony after winning IM Lanzarote.
  • Aug 28th: Max Neumann had to announce that he won’t be able to race Nice after losing too much time because of what was initially thought a minor bike crash.
  • Aug 29th: In a statement on his YouTube channel, Michael Weiss announced that he wont’t race in Nice.
  • Aug 1st: Oliver Martinussen announced on Instagram that he’s “down and out”.
  • Sep 1st: Ironman have updated their startlist and released bib numbers. One surprise for me was that with Jan van Berkel not racing, they have rolled down his slot from Cozumel 2022 to Fernando Toldi. They also haven’t given a bib to Sam Appleton, Matt Burton, Steven McKenna, and Luciano Taccone, making it very unlikely for these athlete to race on Sunday.
  • Sep 3rd: Jesper Svensson posted that he’s preparing for Challenge Almere, I have checked with him that he won’t race in Nice.
  • Sep 4th: Rasmus Svenningsson also had to withdraw, he still has some lingering effects from a recent Covid infection.
  • Sep 5th: Unfortunately, another athlete had to withdraw: Daniel Baekkegard has picked up a sickness in Singapore and is not yet back to full training. 
  • Sep 6th: Andrea Salvisberg also can’t race, he’s been diagnosed with Meningitis. 

To all athletes who can’t race for healthy reasons, get better soon!

Male Qualifiers

This table lists the athletes who have qualified for Nice and are likely to race there. (There is a separate list for the women’s race in Kona.)

(I’m missing the birthdates for a few athletes and for some other I only have the year they were born, so if you spot any missing or wrong data, please let me know!)
