I was pretty excited for Kyle Garlett, who was trying to become the first heart transplant recipient to complete the Hawaii Ironman race. And just 3 years after his transplant. Unfortunatey, things didn’t work out….and Kyle wasn’t able to complete the 2.4 mile swim before the cutoff.
I watched the online coverage of the race on Saturday at UniversalSports.com and saw that there were a couple swimmers who just barely missed the cutoff time. So close….
Kyle’s follow-up story is detailed in this article at Silicon Valley MercuryNews.com.
