Ironman 70.3 World Championships: Men’s Pro Start List

Race day: Saturday, October 29

On the second day of racing, the men take the stage, led by Norwegians Gustav Iden and Kristian Blummenfelt as the heavy favorites. Iden, of course, is not only looking to defend his title but to join an extremely short list of triathletes who have won both Ironman and 70.3 world championship titles. Blummenfelt, who won his 2021 Ironman World Championship title in St. George, will bring a deep familiarity with the course, but how will his hard-fought third place in Kona affect his energy at 70.3 Worlds? He’ll have to contend with a deep field of fresh competition, including American Sam Long, who opted out of Kona this year to focus specifically on this race. He’ll be joined by Ben Kanute (USA), Miki Taaghold (DNK), Jackson Laundry (CAN), and Eric Lagerstrom (USA) – all serious contenders who did not race in Kona this year – all will be looking to claim their first 70.3 world title.

Check back with us next week for a full list of the contenders, who to watch, and even an expert preview on how the race could play out.
