Dave Scott, born January 4th, 1954, is a U.S. triathlete and the FIRST six-time Ironman Triathlon World Champion. He won the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii six times in 1980, 1982, 1983, 1986, and 1987. He is the first inductee in the Ironman Hall of Fame. Scott is often referred to as “The Man” in the endurance athlete world.
When Dave came out of “retirement” at the age of forty, after a five-year period of not racing, he decided to compete again. It was a spectacular and unforgettable performance beating out an “impressive field of professional athletes – many of whom were in their twenties.” Dave placed second overall in that competition.
