Ironman

Vassos Alexander presents an insight into what makes an Ironman triathlon, what it takes to finish and why more and more people are doing it.

Including interviews with world record holder Chrissie Wellington, Scottish pro Catriona Morrison and six time World Champion Dave Scott will speak to us from Hawaii ahead of this year's World Championship.
