On his sixth attempt, Bay of Plenty's Sam Clark took out his first Coast to Coast title at New Brighton Beach in Christchurch last month. Saturday will see a change of discipline for Clark. The kayak has been shelved and he's switched to triathlon for Ironman New Zealand in Taupo. Brian Ashby caught up with him and chatted about his build-up, and also a strange mishap at last year's Ironman.
