Episode 421: IRONMAN 70.3 Morro Bay with Overall Winner Sebastian Radilla

By in Podcast

Jess and BJ sit down with triathlete Sebastian Radilla, who recently captured the overall win at the now-infamous Ironman 70.3 Morro Bay. This year’s race will go down in triathlon history as having some of the most chaotic conditions, which resulted in DNF rates close to 400. Most of these occurred during the swim due to a current that we heard was about 5 knots.

The conversion is 1.15 miles per hour x 5—almost 6 miles per hour, which is faster than most people can swim.

Sebastian, who swam competitively throughout high school and has continued to work on his swim through triathlon, came out of the water first in his age group and then moved through the field to capture the W on the day.

Jess and BJ dive in with this champion to get a first-hand recount of his day and insight into what it takes to be a champion.
