To enroll athletes must meet all four of the following requirements*:
1. Athlete must have completed a minimum of twelve (12) full-distance IRONMAN-branded** races (includes existing and past events) by December 31, 2012.
2. Athlete has never participated in the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i.
3. Athlete must have completed at least one full-distance IRONMAN event in 2011 and 2012.
4. Athlete must be registered for a full-distance IRONMAN event in 2013.
*Legacy athletes will be required to submit their information during online registration. **2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run.
That's the plan, man. I have met all four requirements. Having audited my list of races completed over the years 2006-2012, I found I have completed 13 M-Dot branded Ironman triathlons, and one non-M-Dot Ironman (Vineman). My next race in March in New Zealand, will be my 15th attempt at the 226K-triathlon. Hopefully, the new Legacy Lottery gives me a better chance than the General Lottery, and qualification by podium finish. I am pleased that Clifford Lee was the first Singaporean to benefit from this process, and he successfully achieved his dream in Kona in the Ironman World Championships.
