This Weeks Discussion: We want to know what you feel would create a stronger age group field in Kona: Having 15 age group qualifying IM races split around the world (where all the other races wouldn't have Kona slots) or having an even amount of slots distributed over all of the different IM races in the world? Give us your reasons for your answer. Comment here
