Over the past 6 months I have begun to notice the K-Swiss dominance of Ironman events, in particular Ironman 70.3 events.  I thought to myself, could K-Swiss take on the world?  My answer, heck yeah they could!  I decided to put my hypothesis to the test.  The experiment is called K-Swiss vs. The World, Ironman 70.3 dominance.  I laid out the team rosters as follows. Team K-Swiss includes all K-Swiss sponsored professionals as well as members of the K-Swiss/Trek Team.  The World team gets everyone else.  The coring criteria are as follows:

  • Any race without participants in the Male Pro, Female Pro or both does not count towards the scoring because the team didn’t have representation.  Events pertaining to this rule are highlighted in “red” on the scoreboard.
  • The only events that are scored are events that are part of the Ironman 70.3 series
  • In all events only the top 3 males and females are scored as follows: 

                1st place= 5pts

                2nd place= 3pts

                3rd place=1pt

  • Scoring for the Foster Grant Ironman 70.3 World Championship 70.3 will be scored 10places deep with the following scoring

                        1st place = 20pts

                        2nd place= 12pts

                        3rd place = 10pts

                        4th place = 8pts

                        5th place = 6pts

                        6th place = 5pts

                        7th place = 4pts

                        8th place = 3pts

                        9th place = 2pts

                        10th place= 1pt

Without further ado here is the final scoreboard far for the 2010 year.
