Ironman World Championships 2012

CONGRATULATIONS PETE ON YOUR WIN IN KONA.

We are so proud of you and are thrilled to have helped you achieve your dream.

Seconds after crossing the finish line, Pete delivered what race announcer Mike Reilly called perhaps the best finish line speech in the history of the race;

“I’m in love. I’m in love with the sport. I’m in love with my friends and family. They’ve done so much for me. Those last to miles I was running home to Jamie, my beautiful wife, who I love so much. I was just saying the word ‘love’ to myself over and over again during those last two miles because I’m so lucky to be able to have this opportunity to do what I do, and to have a good day out there with all my friends and family and sponsors here. They believed in me so much. It was just an unbelievable day and there’s just so much love.” Pete Jacobs, 2012 Ironman World Champion
