About This Episode
Kevin Collington got his start in triathlon in 2004 as a freshman at the University of Florida as part of the triathlon club, the “TriGators.” After winning the Collegiate National Championship in 2007, he started racing professionally with the hope of qualifying for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Falling short of that goal, he switched to 70.3 and Ironman distance racing in late 2012. He broke out for his first full Ironman distance professional win at Ironman Taiwan (beating Marino Vanhoenacker), adding to his two Ironman 70.3 victories earlier this season. You can follow Kevin on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Strava.
