Meredith Kessler on the points system:
“I was 31st this year and the top 30 go to Kona, I did not go to Kona because I had a rough start to my season in St. George and Coeur d’Alene. I ran out of time to chase the points. Wisconsin counts towards 2012. I got some points for earning second in Wisconsin and hopefully I’ll get some this weekend. It’s tricky. It used to be that if you win an Ironman then you go to Kona and now we don’t have that luxury. We have to race a little more; I don’t have a problem with the racing part, but I just want to make sure I accrue enough to get to that start line in Kona.”
