The IRONMAN in photos – sports coverage of the most demanding competition in the world

Every year dur­ing the Ironman World Championship, the town of Kona on Big Island, Hawaii becomes the cen­ter of the world for triath­letes. They trav­el from all over the globe to com­pete for fame and glo­ry in the long-distance multi-sport race. Triathletes have to qual­i­fy in advance for a chance to par­tic­i­pate in the event which con­sists of a 3.6 km swim, 180 km bike ride, and 42.2 km run in trop­i­cal temperatures.

Sports coverage from an athlete’s perspective

Sebastian Kuhn,’s CEO and pho­tog­ra­ph­er, used to par­tic­i­pate in triathlons him­self and has been a reg­u­lar guest at the Ironman for many years. Manufacturers of brand name prod­ucts, mag­a­zines, and ath­letes val­ue his pho­to cov­er­ages of com­pe­ti­tions for their authen­tic­i­ty. Only a pho­tog­ra­ph­er famil­iar with the chal­lenges of these events is able to cap­ture them in fas­ci­nat­ing, live­ly pictures.
