As triathletes all over the United States will be recovering from the Thanksgiving holiday, a sold-out field will be preparing to take on the 2014 Ironman Cozumel this Sunday, Nov. 30. Austria’s Michael Weiss will return to defend his title, while the United States’ Jessie Donavan will be the top returning female with defending champion Rachel Joyce (GBR) choosing to prepare for Challenge Bahrain instead.

Weiss top competition will likely come from Viktor Zyemtsev (UKR), Victor Del Corral (ESP) and Matt Chrabot (USA). For the women, all eyes will be on 2012 Olympic gold medalist Nicola Spirig as she takes on her first Ironman ahead of a campaign to qualify for the 2016 Olympic team. Other top women competing include Kelly Williamson (USA), Michelle Vesterby (DEN), Erika Csomor (HUN) and Lucie Zelenkova (CZE).
