Competitors from as far away as Norway, Japan and Australia will descend on Polk County to test their athletic abilities, stamina and competitive drive this Sunday on the 70.3 mile swimming, running and cycling course.  While the more than 2300 adult athletes, including seven-time Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong, will be focused on the competition and the challenge provided by the course, area residents will be able to take in the Ironman experience on a much more leisurely pace.  Lake Eva Park in Haines City will host three full days of activities that will appeal to the entire family, May 18-20.
