Ironman World Championships 🥉🥉
David McNamee, a Scottish native who started triathlon as a bored swimmer. He found success quickly, earning a U23 world championship silver in 2011. He moved up to longer races and won his second-ever full-distance race in 2015. His greatest success came in Kona, where he became the first British man to stand on the podium. In 2017 and 2018, he took bronze twice and posted the third-fastest time in Kona history. In 2019, sickness forced him to retire before the race. At 34, he continues to strive for a third Kona medal.
