# Name Nation Race Date Slot Type

2 Adam, Teresa NZL IM New Zealand, IM Cairns 2019-03-02 Declined

Explanation of Slot Types

Here are some more details on the different slot types:

  • Champion
    Kona Winners receive a slot for the next five years. This slot has to be verified by finishing at least one Ironman outside of Kona. If an athlete has not validated his/her champion slot, “(NV)” is added. (The date shown is the date of the most recent win.)
  • Kona Podium
    Second and third place finisher in Kona receive a slot for next year’s Kona race. This slot has to be verified by finishing at least one Ironman outside of Kona. If an athlete has not validated his/her Kona Podium slot, “(NV)” is added.
  • 70.3
    The winners of the 70.3 Championships receive a slot for next year’s Kona race. This slot has to be verified by finishing at least one Ironman outside of Kona. If an athlete has not validated his/her 70.3 slot, “(NV)” is added.
  • Race
    This is the “normal” way of qualifying by winning or finishing close to the front in an Ironman race. There is no additional validation requirement for this type of slot.
  • Declined
    Athletes who declined a slot they earned in one of the qualifying races. It’s unlikely but if they get another in another race, they may still accept that “second” slot.
