IronMan is a race consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a full marathon 26.2 mile run....all in one day. What's special about this particular IronMan is that it's an Olympic Event for IronMan, meaning only the elite of the elite are qualified to compete. This is a televised event and will have live coverage on the IronMan website.

Competing in an Ironman competition is no small feat. Bart has been training hard over many months (years even!) in preparation. He's competed in both the Boston and New York marathons, various triathlons, and not to mention, this is NOT his first IronMan. In fact, he is head coach to a 150-person triathlon club, Les Chickens.

Follow our IronMan, Barthelemy Rolet, throughout tomorrow's competition and help us cheer him on! We'll post his results and photos soon after the event, so be sure to check back to see how he did!
