WATCH: Stars speak ahead of huge IRONMAN WC at St George

News Director

The time for talking is over in St George – well almost – as we count down to Saturday’s delayed 2021 IRONMAN World Championship.

On Thursday a galaxy of long-distance stars gathered for the final press conference ahead of this eagerly-awaited race.

We have waited more than two years for another IRONMAN World Championship, and despite a number of high-profile withdrawals we still have two stellar Pro fields for St George.

Who spoke at the press conference?

Most of the leading contenders for glory on Saturday were on hand to answer media questions just 48 hours out from the biggest long-distance triathlon since 2019.

This was the final opportunity to hear their thoughts ahead of the start time on Saturday morning local time.
