The selfless act that saved a race

Daniel Clarke shares the story of Anthony Romania's selfless act that saved Shawn Mcleish's Ironman.

— by Daniel Clarke

Triathletes can be competitive, but we aren’t jerks. Go to any race, and you’ll witness countless stories of selfless acts and the sense of community that makes this sport great. The story of Shawn Mcleish and Anthony Romania is a great example. At Ironman Arizona 2018, Romania selflessly helped Mcleish overcome numerous mechanicals to finish his race. If it weren’t for Romania, Mcleish likely wouldn’t have made it.
