Bob Babbitt started racing triathlons way back when the earth was still cooling, in the late 1970’s. He did his first Ironman Triathlon in 1980 on the island of Oahu and ended up completing five more when the event moved to the Big Island.
Despite being incredibly slow at swimming, cycling and running, he has somehow found his way into both the Ironman Hall of Fame and the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame.
He also co-founded Competitor Magazine and the Challenged Athletes Foundation, plus he created Competitor Radio and the Muddy Buddy Ride and Run Series.
When people ask about his best finish in the Ironman World Championship, he is quick to tell them that back in 1980 he finished in the top 60. Hey, who needs to know that there were only 108 people in the race?
When he's not running, riding his bike or exploring the wilderness Cody Westheimer is racking up credits as diverse as they are interesting. To date, he's amassed well over 100 hours of music for feature films, documentary series and iconic sports themes.
He is perhaps best known for his Tour de France theme on NBC. An avid cyclist, his iconic music has been airing each July since 2011. That theme made Cody a sought after force for other sports themes including Major League Soccer, The National Dog Show, The America's Cup and NBC Swimming to name a few. His music has played side by side his hero, John Williams on "Meet the Press."
