Long Course Triathlete Discusses his Progression in the Sport
June 12, 2011 (Boulder, CO) – Tim O’Donnell’s progression in triathlon has been nothing less than extraordinary. Since the time he moved to Colorado Springs in 2008 to join the National Team he has been a silver medalist at the Pan Am Games and two U.S. Pro Championships, and won the Boulder Peak Triathlon twice. Moving to longer distances, he has won four half-IRONMAN races including the 2010 70.3 Pro Championship. At the 2010 ITU Long Course World Championship—roughly three quarters the distance of an IRONMAN with the full swim—he finished second. Now he is taking on the full IRONMAN distance and managed a second place finish in a stacked field at the Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Texas on May 21st. Tim talked to Colorado Triathlete about his career and his debut IRONMAN in Texas.
