Photo opportunities abounded in West Hawai‘i on Saturday, Oct. 12 as the 2019 VEGA IRONMAN World Championship took over Kailua-Kona.

Pro athletes and amateurs alike tackled the Pacific Ocean, pedaled up and down along the coast in the Hawai‘i heat and motored down Ali‘i Drive to the finish line, crossing from a little after 2 p.m. until midnight.

Jan Frodeno set a new course record. Anne Haug captured her first title. The Germans swept the top podium spots in the men’s and women’s divisions. And inspirational stories popped up all over the course including that of Roderick Sewell, a double amputee who became an IRONMAN in 2019.

Check out shots from across and above the course below.
