Triathlon Legend Dave Scott: Ironman Domination to Coaching Excellence
This week we welcome a triathlon legend to Sports Coach Radio: Six-time Ironman World Champion Dave Scott.
Dave Scott was so dominant in the 1980s that he was simply known as The Man. The finishing times and splits he posted then still stand among the very fastest ever.
Now Dave Scott is The Coach – working intensely with several top triathletes, including four-time Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington as well as a highly promising up-and-comer named Drew Scott, who Dave has known intimately since Drew was born.

We talk about the challenges of becoming a world champion coach after having been a world champion athlete, coaching his son, launching a comeback — sort of — and lots more in this fascinating wide-ranging conversation, which took place recently in his office in Boulder, Colorado.
