James Go was there at the Cobra Ironman 70.3 last Sunday to be the official photographer of his 2nd-timer sister, Mickie Go (You can read Mickie’s recent ironman story  here >>.) So he was able to witness the 70.3 Ironman in all angles.

Here are his 5 top favorite photos among all his shots, and his quick story behind it!

Eli’s finish line shot is the moments I live for, true emotion when the whole race flashes in your mind and you can no longer contain yourself. – James Go.

A coach and an athlete is Coach Norman Pascual. Even though he is racing, he always puts his students and team mates first, making sure everyone has something to bite. Congrats to Team Norman!

The swim part is always the wild card for most participants. There are not a lot of strong swimmers. And, this is usually the discipline where most lack in training. No amount of money you invest on gear can make you go significantly faster as compared to the bike part or run part.
