Captain_Ballbeard: At least he died doing what he loved, if he loved drowning.
Magorn: And why exactly isn't the Ironman Triathlon NOT an Olympic event anyway? Decathletes claim to be "the world's greatest athletes" but I think the winner of an Ironman has a better claim to the title
Glenford: It's still a relatively new sport, just introduced in 2000. My understanding is that one of the stipulations the IOC put in was that the event had to be completed in under 2 hours.

My understanding is that one of the stipulations the IOC put in was that the event had to be completed in under 2 hours.I'm probably misunderstanding what you say was introduced in 2000. I know that the Ironman Triathalon was around when I was young; Wikipedia confirms that it started in 1978.
