This weekend is Ironman Kona – the triathlon equivalent of the world Cup final. The winner can call themselves the Ironman World Champion. At the event are the best athletes in the sport – but no UK TV channel will show it.
Why? Simple – triathlons are really boring to watch!
What’s more boring than swimming for an hour? Watching someone else swim for an hour!
What’s more boring than biking on a motorway for five hours? Watching someone else bike on a motorway for five hours!
What’s more boring than running for three hours? You get the idea…
In fact I can’t think of anything worse than watching a Triathlon.
[Checks TV guide. I spot Sky Sports are showing Scotland versus Lithuania]
Actually…does anyone know where I can watch Kona? 🙂
