2015 IRONMAN World Championship Pro Start List Announced

Jan Frodeno will be looking to dethrone Sebastian Kienle this October.

The professional field has been narrowed down to 58 male and 42 female triathletes, all vying for the coveted win Oct. 10, 2015, in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Most of these names are no strangers to the event, and the amount of high-level talent will make for an exciting day of racing. Triathlon heavyweights Craig Alexander, Yvonne van Vlerken and Linsey Corbin will not be competing.
