Who will win at the Ironman World Championships?
With a few days before the showdown on the Big Island I have posted a couple of polls on the blog (to the right) to see who everyone thinks will win the races this year.
The men's race seems pretty wide open with a whole host of returning winners (Macca, Stormin' Norman, Faris Al-Sultan) and a bunch of contenders with Chris Lieto, Craig Alexander, Tojborn Sindballe and Eneko Llanos amongst them as well as newcomer Andy Potts! Anyone got any thoughts?
The women's race seems a bit more compact in terms of contenders with the favorite being last years winner Chrissy Wellington who has smashed the fields so far this year. A number of 2008 Ironman winners are in the field as well as previous winners such as the legendary Natascha Badmann who is trying to return from a serious injury sustained at Kona last year.
Live video and audio coverage will be on Ironman Live beginning with the pre-race build-up from the Pier and continuing until the 17 hour countdown at the Finish Line along Ali'i Drive.......
