Scott-TinleyScott Tinley is a triathlon legend. He won the Ironman World Championship twice and the Ironman World Series 3 times. No other pro triathlete remained competitive as long as Scott.  Join Richard Diaz as he revisits the sport with one of its principal players.

“People always ask me why I haven’t tried to use my name more to continue profiting off my career, to continue my legacy,” he says. “I’ve always thought that people who were asking for more than their 15 minutes of fame were asking for trouble… for me, it’s more important to throw myself into things and figure them out. To keep things changing.”

Scott was inducted into the Triathlon and Ironman Hall of Fame in 1999.
