Athletes who Declined Their Slot

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 finishers 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.
  • Will Not Start
    Athletes who have received a slot but have indicated that they won’t race Kona. Reasons could be different plans or injuries. According to the rules by Ironman, these slots won’t be reassigned to another athlete. The names will also be crossed out.
  • 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 might still accept that “second” slot.

Upcoming Qualifying Races

Please note that the Pro race at IM Mar del Plata has been cancelled (for more see this post), the slots have been re-assigned to Cozumel (which now has 3 male and 3 female slots) and Western Australia (now 2 slots each). An earlier version of this page erroneously listed IM Taiwan as a Pro race, it has been removed as it is an AG-only race in 2020.
