This weekend’s races (Vineman and Racine) solidified athletes’ positions in the 70.3 pro rankings. Melissa Rollinson was the biggest mover on the women’s side, but there was little impact on the Kona Pro Rankings. Tim O’Donnell and Mirinda Carfrae both extended their leads in the overall rankings, and Leanda Cave extended her lead in the 70.3 field.

Following are the official July 70.3 qualifiers for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas, September 11, 2011. All athletes will be notified and requested to accept or decline their slot in the upcoming week. Any declined slots will then be rolled to the next ranked athlete based on the standings of 70.3 Pro Rankings as of 7/17. This list does not include automatic qualifiers—World Champion athletes from the past five years who’ve completed another 70.3 race in the qualifying year.
