Many of you know that legendary British triathlete Tim Don was immobilized in his neck, and wore a medical halo with screws, after getting hit by a car shortly before the 2017 Ironman World Championship in Kona. He returned to triathlon this weekend to win Ironman 70.3 Costa Rica in 03:49:59. Aussie Ryan Fisher finished almost a minute later to claim silver.
USA ruled the women’s podium. Lauren Goss finished first in 04:29:15, followed by Nicole Valentine just shy of 10 minutes later.

A year ago Tim Don broke the Ironman world record. Then his life turned upside down. It’s been a year of a broken neck and unbreakable ambition. Of titanium and bone. Of staring down adversity. Of refusing to be denied your destiny. This is the story of the Man with the Halo.
