Some of the biggest names in the sport have traveled to the Ironman European Championships in Frankfurt, Germany to compete for automatic Kona qualifying spots, coveted KPR points and a share of the $150,000 prize purse. The race will feature by far the most competitive lineup of any Ironman to this point in the season and includes defending Ironman world champion Sebastian Kienle, 2013 Ironman world champion Frederik Van Lierde, defending Ironman 70.3 world champion Daniela Ryf, 2008 Olympic gold medalist Jan Frodeno, two-time ITU long distance world champion Caroline Steffen and more. With race day temperatures expected to reach 101 degrees F, pros did their best to stay cool in the days leading up. See the complete lineup here. Check back Sunday for a race recap and photo gallery.
