Ironman World Championship musings

It is almost the time of year again for the most hyped triathlon of the season. The Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. Here are some thoughts leading into the race and general musings.


It’s just another race, yet for some reason it it is treated differently by some athletes.

Which athletes have kept to themselves, avoided the media & flying under the radar? 

Can anyone topple Jan Frodeno & Daniela Ryf?  

Who is carrying a little niggle or battling a slight illness?  We will only find out on race day.

Who are going to be the early hitters who could shape the race early on?

Who are the athletes that could feature but are not getting talked about pre race? 

Will the online coverage and commentators analyse the whole race and read how it is unfolding or just focus on the leaders?


I can’t wait to watch the drama unfold and best of luck to every athlete racing.
