Ironman today posted the names of the winners of the annual Ironman World Championships Lottery. A small handful of amatuer athletes will get the chance to mix it up with the big boys without the need to qualify for the big show.
According to the IM web site:
"Thanks to the vision of Ironman founder John Collins, who insisted that a
system be maintained to allow the "common man" a chance to compete in
this great race, 200 far-from-common age-groupers will join the rest of
the 1,800 strong in Kailua Bay on October 9, 2010 for the Ford Ironman
World Championship. Once you're done celebrating ... get training!"
You can see if you (or your friends/family) made it into the race HERE .
