Unofficial KPR & 2018 Kona Pro Slot Allocation for August Cutoff

2018 Kona Rating Report Title ThumbHere is my calculation of the KPR at the end of August qualifying, deciding the final 10 male and 7 female slots (in addition to the July Qualifiers). My results are unofficial, the official results will be posted on the Ironman website at http://eu.ironman.com/triathlon/triathlon-rankings/points-system.aspx (but as far as I can tell will show the same data). I do not show the July qualifiers, therefore it is a bit easier to determine the August qualifiers. The ranks of athletes just outside the slots will be shown in (brackets). I will update this post with new information regarding declined slots and rolldown.

Once the field has been completed, I will work on this year’s version of the Kona Rating Report, looking at the field and each athlete’s chances for a good result. The free report will be released in time before the Kona race, you can already pre-order your copy.

Update Aug 21st: As expected, Yvonne has declined her slot and it’s been accepted by Katja Konschak. Most of the other slots have been accepted by now, the few remaining ones are expected to do so with the next day or two.

Update Aug 22nd: As Tim Don posted on his Instagram feed, he received a rolldown slot, apparently from Jonathan Shearon who is the only athlete not marked with a Q on the KPR website.

Update Aug 23rd: Matt Russell was offered a wild-card slot by Ironman which he accepted (details in his Instagram post). Matt was racing last year’s race in Kona when he was hit by cross-traffic and barely escaped with his life.
