ST. THOMAS ­- The field is set for Sunday's Captain Morgan Ironman 70.3 St. Croix Triathlon, now in its 25th year, and the athletes are excited about the challenges that await them.

"St. Croix is definitely the hardest half Ironman course that I've done on the circuit, and I've done most of them," said course record holder Tim O'Donnell of Shavertown, Pa. "With the heat, humidity, and hard terrain, it's a true challenge."
