47 - IRONMAN© 70.3 Chattanooga - Overall Winner - Andrew Starykowicz

I begin the IRONMAN© Chattanooga 70.3 series with the Winner of the race Andrew Starykowicz.  Andrew has been a Professional Triathlete for more than 10 years, has recently completed three half ironman distance races and a full Ironman in 43 days.  He has the World Record for both the Fastest Ironman Bike Split as well as the Fastest Half Ironman Bike Split.  He talks about his training going into the race, which was a 70.3 the weekend prior where he placed second with a time of 3:41:58 at IRONMAN© 70.3 Monterrey.  The pictures below are from Orbea’s professional photography team, Eric Engel, and myself.
