For many triathletes having a chance to be part of the Ironman Hawaii World Championship age-group results 2013 is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The road to the big show in Kona is getting tougher and tougher to travel. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s when there were far fewer Ironmen and far fewer Ironman Triathlons around the world it was not nearly as difficult to earn a qualifying spot.

Every time a new Ironman Venue is announced the competition for a spot in the Ironman World Championships becomes that much more difficult to earn.

Across the board the times are just getting faster. There was a day not that long ago when all you had to do was cross the finish line in the male 60-64 age-category in under 13 hours and you would earn a ticket to Kona.

Not anymore.

For instance in the Ironman Louisville results 2013 the first place finisher in the male 60-64 age-group posted a 10:39:40. Just imagine the second and third place finishers who broke the tape in 10:44:22 and 10:48:41 respectively thinking perhaps they were on their way to Kona.

Most likely there was only one qualifying spot for Kona in that age-category.

This is happening in Ironman races all over the world and it’s a testament to what the sport of triathlon has done for the health and longevity of people around the world.
