Monda earns Ironman all-world status
Vancouver’s Joshua Monda continues to climb the nation’s triathlon ranks.
Monda has achieved 2022 Ironman Gold All-World Athlete status for his performance in 2021. That means the 39-year-old is among the top 1% of athletes in the Male 35-39 age group worldwide.
Monda’s 2021 results placed him 10th nationally in the United States Triathlon Association rankings for his age group. He’s ranked second in the Northwest and first in Washington.
In June, Monda braved temperatures of 100 degrees to place 68th overall at the Ironman Coeur d’Alene in Idaho.
That qualified Monda for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. The 2021 race, originally scheduled for Oct. 9, has been moved to St. George, Utah and rescheduled for May.
