Great Britain's Harry Wiltshire took second place at Ironman Japan on Sunday - and with it completed (successfully), perhaps one of the most exhausting and committed efforts to qualify for Kona and the Ironman World Championships in October. That result comes just a week after racing Ironman Kalmar, Sweden where he took fifth position.

Wiltshire's 2014 'world tour' has seen him travel the globe, race well, blow up, crash spectacularly, break bones and much more - and those efforts have resulted in Kona qualification secured on the final weekend of qualifying races.

Wiltshire will now join Daniel Halksworth (who also left his qualification late, with a second place at the Ironman North American Championships last weekend), as the two British male representatives in Pro division in Kona in October.
