Jessica Weidensall and Blair LaHaye (the Ironman PR and media superfriends) call Greg Welch, the "Welch of Knowledge," Greg's jovial personality, and his amazing history in triathlon, unquestionably make him the spirit of our sport. I've known Greg for many years -- he was one of the "San Diego Fantastic Five" and his approach to life and triathlon captivated me when I first found triathlon in the early 90's.
On ironmanlive, triathlon fans can follow Greg every stroke, spin and stride live on race day by visiting http://www.ironmanlive.com/. Catch real-time race results, live audio and video. This year, text updates and photos are also available.
