Winning in Kona: The Boulder Effect

LEG LUBE: One has to go back six years – to 2006 – to find a year when an IRONMAN World Champion did not train in Boulder, Colorado. In fact, in the five years since Michellie Jones and Normann Stadler were victorious on the lava fields and Ali’i Drive, 80 percent of the female and male world champions have done their prime training in Boulder. As a resident of this lovely county, I couldn’t be prouder :-).

•   2008, 2009 and 2011 – Chrissie Wellington and Craig Alexander

•   2010 – Mirinda Carfrae

We encourage you to give it a try too. Read the whole article at:
