local athlete aiming for Kona Ironman

James DeFilippi, who rides for the styling local bike racing team Squadra Coppi, is aiming to participate in the Ironman World Championship Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii.  He's trying to win a spot through the Kona Inspired contest.  Here's his contestant statement:
James DeFilippi - Kona. I Can. I Will.

Born a Hemophiliac, I have learned to manage my condition and have pursued triathlons to the best of my ability, pushing my limits further every year. I hope to be an inspiration to young Hemophiliacs and other kids with any sort of disadvantage, showing that with determination, dedication, and listening to your body, truly anything is possible.
Check out his video.  Your vote can help to send him to Kona!
