King Of Kona

The weight of expectation is a strange thing. Some will rise to meet it, whereas others will crack under it. Each year, Kona plays host to the biggest showdown in triathlon, the Ironman World Championships, a place where pressure builds naturally like the molten rock breaching cracks in the island's scarred surface. Expectation bears down on all who make it this far. Heading to Kona with a title to defend, that expectation is on another level. But that couldn't stop Jan Frodeno.
