Using Motorized Bikes for IRONMAN events

Why do people want to go through all the trouble of swimming 3.8km, cycle 180km and run a marathon in a single day? well, if you don’t know what I am talking about you don’t need to read this because it is a total SHAME on the IRONMAN event.

This event has been the epitome of challenging one endurance and discipline but I thinkΒ  people these days got caught in the lime light that having a Ironman bling will make themselves some sort of celebrity.

For myself participating in Ironman events is all about self discipline and how we train and seeing ourself emerge better than previous before but hey, everyone has their reason for participating in endurance event. Just this morning I was browsing through my twitter timeline and this caught my eye, once I have read it I truly think that the glamour of the event got the better of some people out there. Seriously what happened to fair play?

  1. How is people cheating in events and the Ironman people checking bikes to make sure there’s no motor in the bike, a shame on Ironman?

    It’s a shame on those who cheat.

    • this type of people are so blinded by the glory of finishing rather than the spirit of going through the full Ironman event. The bling got to them, sad but true. The event has gain enormous amount of publicity. I think the organizers should BAN and SHAME them in front of the whole Ironman community if caught.

      • Oh, I fully agree but the shame is on the individual, not the organization. That’s all I was saying.
