 Javier Gómez Noya currently occupies the 9 position in the KPR world ranking and is virtually classified in the absence of completing an Ironman for the Hawaii World Cup 2018

The World Cup in Hawaii comes 50 best triathletes of the world ranking, in addition to former world champions and continental champions

The four best Ironman circuit races are those that award KPR points in the standings, and the triathletes must meet the requirement that at least one of those four be an Ironman and score up to a maximum of 3 Ironman. With respect to Ironman 70.3 races, the maximum number of races that score for Kona are 2.

Current situation

The second Spanish in the KPR ranking is IM 70.3 of Chattanooga with 3920 points in the 9 position. Javi got those points thanks to the victory in the world cup IM 70.3 of Chattanooga (3000 points) and the fourth position achieved in Barhein's 70.3 (920), where he certified his qualification for next year's IM 70.3 World Cup in South Africa.

 Some days ago Javier Gómez Noya confirmed that his great goal in 2018 will be the Kona World Championship. In the face of the Ironman World Championship of 2018 Noya you just need a requirement to qualify: Finish an Ironman in 2018, the deadline being the August 18, when the qualification period for the next year's hawaii World Cup closes.

Where will Javier Gómez Noya make his debut?

It is one of the great unknowns of the world triathlon of 2018. So far he has not announced where he will so all we are quoting below are assumptions.

On the one hand, seeing the competitiveness of Galician, one option would be to dispute any of the continental championships (South Africa, Frankfurt, Texas, Cains or Florianópolis) that having the double points that the rest of ironmans the level of the participants is usually higher.

Another possibility could be the Ironman of Lanzarote, area that Javi knows well because he has trained there many years in preseason and Lanzarote is a test contrasted, the Ironman (of the IM franchise) oldest in Europe ... this would be the dream of most of the Spanish fans !.

Debute where Javi debuts, we wish him the best for his "Road to kona 2018"
