Believe...Pick a stronger word than Hope...Cure.
The 2006 Ford Ironman World Championship broadcast, taped on location in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, on October 21, 2006, received an Emmy Award at Monday night’s 28th Annual Sports Emmy Awards Ceremony. With a fifth win in the category of Outstanding Edited Sports Special, one of the highest honors, Ironman has now captured 14 Emmy awards to date. "Ironman is full of inspirational stories, but there is one particular story I wish to share with you tonight. In 2005, an athlete suffering from ALS completed the Ford Ironman World Championship and that athlete returned to Hawaii in 2006 in a wheelchair as a spectator. Tonight, Ironman athlete, Jon Blais is fighting for his life. I’d like to dedicate this year’s Emmy to the Blazeman and his family," said Ironman’s Executive Television Producer, Peter Henning, during his speech Monday night.
