In this episode of The Greg Bennett Show, Greg has a delightful conversation with Cam Brown.

Cam Brown is redefining what we think of aging and longevity. His passion for Triathlon is evident in his consistent, relentless pursuit of bettering himself every time he races.

At 48, he toes the line with athletes more than half his age. He’s raced three generations of professionals and continues to be competitive.

His resume is one of the greatest Ironman resumes in the world, some highlights include:

12 x NZ IM Champ

A win at the European IM Championships (Fra) & 2 x 2nd

Four podiums at the Kona IM World Championships 2 x 2nd, 2x 3rd

10 x NZ Half IM Champ

He knows himself; he knows his strengths and he knows his weaknesses and he played his cards accordingly. He has optimized his career in sport to its fullest and I for one truly have the utmost respect.

In this episode, Cam reflects on his 30+ year career, the advances in technology, the incredible athletes he's competed against, and when he realized that Ironman was made for him.

Cam shares his passion for the sport of Triathlon and how that passion is still fueling him. His goal is to race as a professional athlete into his 50s, that's something that has never been done before.

His calm demeanor is evident in this conversation. Not easily rattled being a useful weapon for longevity in professional sport.
