#GBKona 2018: A personal message from Tim Don

“There were times this year I didn’t think I would get here”

It’s been one of the triathlon stories of the year, brilliantly reflected through the emotional documentary, The Man with the Halo.

12 months after breaking his neck on the course of the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, Great Britain’s Tim Don is back – and tomorrow, he will be entering the water on Dig Me Beach and starting the most iconic race in the sport alongside the world’s best. It’s been an incredible journey and a truly inspiring comeback.

With less than 24 hours until the cannon fires, Tim has sent through a personal message to Tri247 readers. Take his advice, enjoy your Kona party, cheer on the Brits – and perhaps raise a glass to a remarkable recovery.

Good luck Tim!
