Along with Joe Skipper, David McNamee was the break-out Brit Ironman male of the 2015 season. McNamee came through the British Triathlon set-up before leaving for the long-course world in late 2014. The next year saw him take the Ironman UK title and finish 11th at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii, the best male Brit of the day and with the fastest marathon time, too.
