About Dave Scott: One of triathlon's most recognizable names, Dave Scott began his career at the inception of the sport in 1976. He is a six-time Hawaii Ironman world champion, crossing the finish line first in Kona in 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986 and 1987.

Well known for his epic duels with Mark Allen, Scott was the first-ever inductee into the Ironman Hall of Fame in 1993 and celebrated his induction in 1994 by coming out of retirement to place second in Kona at the age of 40. He returned to Kona again in 1996, where he finished fifth overall at the age of 42.

Dave was inducted into the Triathlete Magazine Hall of Fame in 1999 and into the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame in 2011 following his father, Verne’s induction in 2008.

A native of Davis, CA, Dave currently resides in Boulder, CO, where he coaches many multisport athletes ranging from age-groupers to elites. Since 1999 Dave has been the National Triathlon Coach for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program.

Dave continues his athletic and business endeavors through his involvement in corporate presentations, coaching clinics, marketing, instructional DVDs and as an author for numerous publications and websites. But his greatest joy comes from supporting his three children’s activities and pursuits.

Team In Training® (TNT) is the nation’s most widely recognized personal endurance sports training program designed to prepare an individual to run a marathon, cycle a 100-mile century ride, or complete an Olympic or Half-Iron distance triathlon. Since TNT started over 23 years ago more than $900 million dollars have been raised to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) mission to find a cure for blood cancers. The Texas Gulf Coast Chapter is currently recruiting for participants for two upcoming triathlons, The Memorial Hermann 70.3 in Galveston, and the St. Croix 70.3.

Kaizen Multisport was formed by Jay Branson, one of the LLS Texas Gulf Coast Chapter’s TNT Triathlon coaches, as a vehicle to host triathlon training programs and to help recruit and promote TNT. Jay holds coaching certifications from USA Triathlon Level I, USA Cycling Level III, American Swimming Coaches Association Level II, and TNT’s Dave Scott certification.
