Dave Scott knows a thing or two about Ironman. One of the sport's most decorated champions, the US triathlete was the first person to earn six Ironman Triathlon Hawaii Championships. 

Known by the nickname 'The Man' for his fortitude and rigorous training regimes, his never-give-up attitude won adoration among fans and pride of place among the sport's greats. 

And marking his role as one of the key figures in the global establishment of the sport, he was the first person inducted in the Ironman Hall of Fame. 

In 1994, aged 40, he won second place at the Hawaii Ironman World Championship while in 1996 he returned again to place fifth, running the marathon in 2:45 at the age of 42.
