Kona Chat: Andreas Raelert On Turning A Bad Day Good

It takes one heck of an athlete to turn an abject performance into an impressive result. Andreas Raelert started the Ironman World Championships with a swim that was (by his standards) poor.

We caught up with the – as always – refreshingly honest German to talk about his race.
