Inspiring Ironman finisher interview airs tomorrow.

Tune into The Ellen DeGeneres Show tomorrow, August 12, and gain inspiration from Ironman athlete Brian Boyle. The 22-year-old from Welcome, MD, was involved in a tragic car accident in 2004 that nearly took his life and went on to finish the Ford Ironman World Championship.

After dying eight times on the operating table, doctors told him he may never walk again. Determined to survive, Boyle not only made a full recovery, but also began competing in triathlon. To date, Boyle has finished many Ironman events, including the Ford Ironman World Championship and Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3, demonstrating the Ironman mantra of “anything is possible.”
