Central Florida Event Photography | Ironman 70.3

The day after the IronKids battled the 70.3 mile course more than two thousand athletes gathered on the same lake to conquer the Ironman 70.3. The course was the same but the energy was worlds apart, today winning mattered, finishing 1st was the goal. As more than fifteen thousand spectators lined the streets, one of America's most decorated athletes crossed the finish line in 3 hours and 45 minutes, he finished first. Lance Armstrong the seven time Tour de France winner won his first Ironman that day in Haines City, Florida and claimed his first triathlon win in 20 years.

It was a day of firsts; Lance's 1st Ironman win, the 1st time Haines City hosted the event and the 1st time I had the honor & privilege to capture history being made by a world class athlete.
