WTC just announced that they’re expanding the Age Group Ranking system that they were trailing in the EU in 2011 and 2012, to the rest of the world in 2013.
From the announcement:
You may race as much as you’d like in 2013, but only the top three (3) race performances are scored. You can improve your ranking by improving on your race performance. (For example, if you have a strong performance in one IRONMAN race and two good performances in IRONMAN 70.3 events, you may choose to race another IRONMAN 70.3, improve your finish time and improve your rank.
The AGR recognizes age group athletes in three different categories: IRONMAN, IRONMAN 70.3 and a combination of both race distances. The AGR is not connected to KPR (Kona Points Ranking) in any way.
The AGR allows IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 athletes the opportunity to see how their race performances compare to other competitors in their age group throughout the calendar year. Rankings will be updated weekly.
