The battle to get enough points to  make the professional male and female start line at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii in October is tough for many athletes. Take Ronny Schildknecht for example. He only found out this week, week of 25th August, that he had a spot for the 2014 Championships due to the withdrawal from the field of Dirk Bokel because of injury.

Tyler Butterfield did not have to worry about securing a spot as outstanding performances meant that he was confirmed this week on the start line as the fourth ranked male pro by points.

Here are the top 10 male and female professionals confirmed for these Championships :

Sebastian Kienle DEU 14,770   Rachel Joyce GBR 10,240
Frederik Van Lierde BEL 11,640   Meredith Kessler USA 10,100
