I can remember watching the finish to every Kona Ironman World Championship and feeling the intense emotions that are expressed when completing the race. Let’s face it, the human body wasn’t meant to do what these men and women accomplish. The human brain is a powerful tool, and it can absolutely dictate the outcome of any race. From extreme highs to bottomless low’s, triathletes have to endure so much pain to feel the gain.
There is no other endurance sport that conveys as many emotions as IRONMAN does. Due to its long distance, pro athletes as well as age groupers go through extreme emotional highs and lows on their journey to finish the world’s toughest 1-day endurance challenge.
In our ‚Great Emotions’ webclip we meet 2014 IRONMAN World champion and reigning European champion Sebastian Kienle, Germany’s top female IRONMAN pro and 2015 IRONMAN Wales winner Anja Beranek and 2-time European IRONMAN Champion and 9-time IRONMAN winner Timo Bracht, as they share their thoughts about the emotions that IRONMAN triggers.
They also talk about the emotional connection that the IRONMAN spectators have with the athletes and why this makes IRONMAN one of the most special sports in the world.
