We have MACCA's birthday week now. Usually in our countries it brings bad luck, if you celebrate your birthday before your actual birthday. But we realized that the parties around Chris' birthday are already in full swing, other countries, other customs. Okay then, here we go too and launch our birthday video dedicated to Chris.
Chris is for sure one of the most radiant figures in triathlon. Since his first world title in 1996 he developed more and more into a front figure in this niche sport. Today triathlon is more and more spreading out and reaching people who before haven't had a clue what an Ironman is. It was a sport one encountered with awe and respect. We normal people couldn't envision at all that this would be an activity we might be able to do ourselves. Now times have changed, triathlon is not a mass movement yet, but it definitely connected with us normal people. Chris "MACCA" McCormack has a great share in this development making triathlon a more popular sport.
This video shows Chris during the last 5 years, the time span since when we accompanied him with our camera. It is a very emotional piece showing the most intense moments of these years.
