Anthony Philippe is this year's 2019 Ironman World Champion at Kona for the 50-54 age group. This was his 38th Ironman race and his 15th Kona so he's experienced!
Anthony Philippe is experienced and an absolute tiger out on the race course as he chases down competitors, yet we found his story approachable, inspiring, human. He's a family man, he has a full-time, non-stop job, and he gets-it-done with his triathlon practice.
But do not be tempted to think Anthony is one of those joyless triathlon automatons! He gave us a word of wisdom: "If the WHY is powerful, the HOW is easy." Chew on that during your next hard training session. Or when you're faced with a challenge in family life or work life.
If Kona Kamps has taught us one thing, it is we get to race on the same course with people like Anthony Philippe and we couldn't be more grateful. Congratulations Anthony!
