World Championships

ITU World Championships 2013 / Kyle Medeiros

International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships is by far the biggest race I have competed at. It was a full week of racing and excitement. I have never seen a whole city get shut down for a race. Everywhere you looked, whether it was on the street or in the hotel there were triathletes in their country’s uniforms and banners advertising the race


Ironman World Championships 2013 / Marc Capobianco

It has taken me five years to return to the Big Island. I am beyond excited about being here. So the race on Saturday is just about getting out there and enjoying it. Sure, I certainly want to give it all I got, but there is no pressure, no need to hit a certain time or certain place. There are no expectations except crossing that line on Ali’i.
