It is considered the most important moment in Triathlon and Ironman history. In the winter of 1982 the battle between Kathleen McCartney (left) and Julie Moss (right) became must see TV as Moss’s huge lead disappeared in a matter of minutes. The finish that evening became one of the signature moments of ABC’s Wide World of Sports when, after being passed within yards of the finish, Moss crawled towards the finish and collapsed on the line. That epic Agony of Defeat/Thrill of Victory moment touched people watching at home who decided they needed to find out for themselves why crossing that Ironman finish line was so damn important.
On November 17th Bob Babbitt from Competitor Magazine will interview about the race, the finish that linked them forever and their lives since that classic moment nearly 30 years ago.
