Ironman championships on TV?
I missed the live showing on ironmanlive.com. I was hoping someone would know if it will be coming on TV somtime soon? I know they usually show a shorter version on NBC. But when will that happen, and will there be any other showings? Thanks for the updates!
Saturday, November 12, if I remember correctly.
crazy i now, but that 4 inch square live feed on my PC was the most compellign thing i've watched in ages
it sat there running for about 10 hours straight
such an amazing race....damn that heat looked killer
The race will be broadcast on NBC on Saturday, November 12, 2005 at 4:30PM EST

P.S. This year's broadcast should be a great one, high on intensity: Sarah Reinertsen's 2nd attempt (single leg amputee), Johnny Blais' race (ALS), Faris Al Sultan's breakthrough, Natascha Badmann's sixth victory, record age group times in nearly perfect conditions, records set for the oldest ever male and female finishers...
I only caught the last few hours on ironmanlive.com (I had my days confused). I can't stand the NBC stuff--the coverage is too short and pays only parting attention to the athletes actually racing. OLN's coverage seems to do the same thing. I want to get the full version to watch over the winter (the bike trainer can be mind numbing). If anyone knows how to get a copy of the ironmanlive coverage, please pass along the info.
It is fantastic.
I watched the NBC recap today. I was crying by the end.
Here's the link for the DVD:
