    Wasn't Mark Allen undefeated in 1989 prior to Kona? I believe he also had some top five finishes also in Kona
    – so really not a terrible record in triathlon prior to the 'Iron War.'

  • From what I know, Mark had a lot of successes in triathlon before '89, especially at the Nice Triathlon Championships (where he even beat Dave Scott). But his luck at Kona wasn't so great until '89 when things finally went his way! He still had some great finishes in Kona prior to '89 but no W's there. ~Tawnee
