Matt Russell On His Comeback From Tragedy

Matt Russell talks about last year's big Kona finish, his struggles since his 2017 Kona accident, and his season so far.

In 2017, Matt Russell’s Kona dream ended abruptly when he collided with a car on the race course. Last year, Russell staged a huge comeback from his accident with a sixth place finish at the Hawaii Ironman World Championships. This year, Russell’s back and stronger than ever, and he talks with us about looking to improve upon his 2018 finish after an emotionally charged victory in Lake Placid.
