"I can't quit I haven't got to the line"

The woman who notoriously crawled across the finish line in 1982's Ironman, Julie Moss, tells Vassos Alexander how she managed to carry on despite her body collapsing. Julie, a student who entered the competition for research, says she just hoped to finish the race, but was leading with a quarter of a mile to go. The footage was captured by ABC television, adding to the triathlon's formidable reputation.
