Triathlete Hour: Ep. 75 - Tim Don does everything
Play • 1 hr 5 min

This week we have another all British show! We’re talking to Tim Don—the Olympian and former Ironman world record holder is maybe best known these days as "the man with the halo," after breaking his neck when he was hit by a car in Kona and spending months in a halo device that was screwed into his skull and held his neck in place. He came back from that to run the Boston Marathon and race Kona.

Now we talk about all the things he’s involved in: serving as a team captain for Super League, a back-up guide for the Paralympics, and don’t count him out yet at the age of 43, he’s training in the UK rain and getting ready for next year’s races.

He’s also a dad and his kids interrupt us a couple times, because they want to play!

We also first do a quick preview of the showdown going on this weekend at Ironman California and why the pros are battling for end-of-year rankings.

For more questions with Tim, check out our Q&A on Super League and what's next at Triathlete.
