Cam Brown

Cam has had a passion for triathlon ever since he did his first race back in the summer of 1987. Some 30 years later he is still competing and loving it. Much has been written about Cam Brown's accomplishments in the sport of triathlon, and rightly so. When you think of triathlon, the level of commitment required to perform year after year at the top its hard to believe. At 49, Cam Brown has completed nearly 70 Ironman races, and when, or if, he ever stops turning upto the start line, he will go down as one of the greatest triathletes the world has ever seen.
