‘I get to swim, bike and run all day’

Watch how Skye Moench followed her passion all the way to Ironman World Championships

Skye Moench was set to make her Ironman World Championship debut in 2019, but then a bad accident sent her into recovery mode. Then Covid happened, deferring her dream another two years.

Despite the setbacks, she remained one of the most upbeat athletes in triathlon, and even turned in a career year in 2021 that included an American Ironman record.

This Saturday, she’ll finally get her chance to compete for an Ironman World Championship. The race won’t be taking place in its traditional spot in Kona, but in St. George, Utah, near Moench’s home in Salt Lake City. Two-and-a-half years after her accident, she’ll be competing in the biggest race of her life as a home crowd favorite.

Watch her journey to get to this moment:
