As for the favorites of the victory, the most favorite is the Swiss Daniela Ryf that he has won the victory in the last four editions and that he will look for his fifth world title in Kona.
With her victory in Nice, the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, Daniela has become the first triathlete, both men and women, to win 5 world titles in the specialty, so 10 could get world titles this year.
HIS great rival is the British Lucy Charles 26 year old, second in 2017 and 2018 coming to Kona with victories in The Championship, South Africa and Roth. Last year he managed to beat the swimming record.
This year Lucy presents herself with a more consistent running career than in previous years. As he showed with his victories at IM South Africa and Challenge Roth where he went down from the 3 hours in the marathon.
What is certain is that it will come out with a lot of difference in the water and if it can maintain some advantage over the bike in the T2 and it manages to make a good marathon sure it will raise battle for Ryfen the fight for the title.
