  • Let's talk about a great swim this morning, the 50:39 minute swim of Drew Scott. The 24-year old is in his rookie IRONMAN pro race here in Nice today. He has been participating at the IRONMAN world championship in 2011 as an age group athlete in the category 18-24. He was USA Triathlon Amateur athlete of the year in 2012 and turned pro in 2013. He had a great race in May taking third place at IRONMAN 70.3 St. Croix.
