Best of luck to everyone doing their thing in Kona today. From the athletes to the announcers, the spectators, staff, sponsors, partners and volunteers, today is the biggest day of the year in the sport of triathlon for so many people at the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championships.
Athletes, take some time to breathe in the atmosphere as you stand on the start line, embrace the excitement and cross that iconic finish line with a smile as you dance down the magic carpet.
For the day that is in it here are a few of my Kona related podcasts to whet your appetite for the racing action that will unfold from 5:25pm Irish time on IRONMAN now
I know I will be glued to the tracker for most of the night! It's going to be another cracker of a World Championships.
