Who is racing and who is not?

We have plenty of detailed previews coming up over the next few days, but it is fair to say that with the cancellation of the IRONMAN World Championship in October, the half-distance variant has swiftly moved to A+ status for many athletes.

Daniela Ryf (SUI) will be seeking a remarkable sixth 70.3 world title and she will get to face-off again with her Collins Cup conqueror, Taylor Knibb (USA).

There will be no Flora Duffy, who would have been a fascinating addition, but the British contingent will be very strong in both numbers (six five **) and quality. [**UPDATE – confirmed that Lucy Hall will not start].

Three of those athletes – Holly Lawrence, Emma Pallant-Brown and Lucy Charles-Barclay – all have previous podium success at the championship, with Lawrence the champion in 2016 (Mooloolaba).
