This started out as a just an exercise in editing and some experimentation in the editing process and computer graphics. And, then it seem to evolve into a project that did a good job of reflecting an endurance sport that is demanding and challenging.
The video has snippets of some key historical moments in the sport called Ironman Triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile open water swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile (marathon) at the end.
A brief note: At the end, the two finishing the Ironman are a father and son team. They are the Hoyt's. And... yes, the father pulls his full grown handicap son on a small boat for the swim... and, has a specially designed bike to carry his son... and, pushes his son in a wheel chair for the entire 140.6 miles. They are multi-ironman finishers and follow the same mandatory cut off times as the other competitors. They are unbelieveable.
