  • IRONMAN Cozumel

    This secluded gem of an island off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is a beloved destination for beach-goers and IRONMAN athletes alike.
    Surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, Cozumel is located 16 kilometers off the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo. Boasting the second largest barrier reef in the world, Cozumel has an international reputation as one of the premier diving destinations in the world. Thousands of divers and snorkelers visit every year to experience the 200 feet of visibility, countless species of fish, sponges, anemones and coral. If diving isn't up your alley, the island offers both adventure and relaxation at every turn: untrammeled jungle, white sand beaches, and a year-round Caribbean climate are just a few of the things athlete have to look forward to pre and post-race.

    Featured men: Viktor Zyemtsev, Michael Weiss, Matt Chrabot, Victor Del Corral, Matt Russell, Max Kriat, Trevor Desault.
    Featured women: Nicola Spirig, Kelly Williamson, Michelle Vesterby, Jessie Donavan, Erika Csomor and Lucie Zelenkova.

  • Spirig Excited About IRONMAN Challenge

    Winner of the London Olympic women's triathlon, Nicola Spirig (CHE) will be starting her first IRONMAN race of her career. The race date in Mexico in the midst of an Olympic four-year cycle is excellent timing and will not interfere with her ultimate goal – qualifying for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil and defending her Olympic title. “The date at the end of November (for IRONMAN Cozumel) was perfect for me as it meant I had a late goal to keep me motivated to train and I knew it wouldn't have any consequences for my short distance racing,” explained Spirig.

    “The downside was that I only had six weeks of preparation and long distance training since the idea of doing an Ironman after my win at the World Cup in Cartagena came up. Even if we knew that the time was too short to prepare properly I got very excited by the thought of this challenge and was happy to try.”

    A full interview with Spirig will be available during this weekend's coverage of IRONMAN Cozumel where the Olympic champion talks about motherhood, people that have influenced her to take on IRONMAN and more.

  • Good morning from #IMCozumel! Transition is edgy today, so I'm going to get out of here and to the swim.

  • Thaaaaat's better. Conditions are calm so far at #IMCozumel. No wind, smooth waters, cool temps.

  • Good morning from the 2014 Ford Ironman Cozumel. The sixth edition of this race is scheduled to start with the pro men at 6:40 a.m., while the pro women will start the point-to-point swim here in Mexico at 6:42 a.m.
    The age group waves will commence at 6:52 a.m. and continue every three minutes with the final wave hitting the water at 7:13 a.m.
  • The 2014 Ford Ironman Cozumel pro men's race has started.
  • The pro women's race has commenced and will have a ten minute buffer between them and the first age group wave.
  • Viktor Zyemtsev, Pedro Gomes, Max Kriat and Michael Ruenz were on the start list, but will not be starting this morning.
  • The swimmers should be swimming with a light to moderate current today with this point-to-point non-wetsuit swim. They will have to swim into a current when they hook back to hit the docks at the swim finish. Experience open water swimmers will take a line closer to the shore for the final leg of the swim to reduce the impact of swimming into the current.
