Kona 2014: liveblog

We go live at 5pm UK time on Saturday 11 October to cover all the action from the pro races at this year's Ironman World Championship in Hawaii


It’s upon us – Kona 2014 is finally here! Will Britain’s Rachel Joyce go one better this year and take the grand prize, or will ‘Rinny’ win again? And can Belgium’s Frederik Van Lierde defend his title?


Join our columnist Tim Heming at 5pm UK time for discussion and insight on all the action from Hawaii, where thousands of the world’s best long distance triathletes will swim 3.8km, bike 180km and run 42.2km in one nailbiting day.

Check out our predictions for the men’s and women’s pro races, and don’t forget you can watch the livestream on www.ironmanlive.com. You can also follow all the British athletes on Twitter via the hashtag #GBKona.

P.S. We’d love you to dive into the comments below and tell us your opinion, don’t be shy!
