Matt Russell is a professional triathlete who is particularly adept in the Ironman distance. He’s very well known on the Ironman circuit. Matt has placed in the top three at several Ironman competitions: Canada, Mount Tremblant, Chattanooga, and Ironman Texas 70.3. He also finished 1st at Lake Placid and has won two other Ironman competitions. Furthermore, Matt has won two half Ironman races and has placed in the top 3 eighteen times.
Matt’s career suffered a serious setback in 2017, when he was competing in the World Championship Ironman Kona. A speeding car hit Matt, causing his head to go through the windshield. As a result, he severed several muscles in his neck and got a concussion. Although Matt almost lost his life doing what he loves, he made a full recovery, despite the challenges he faced along the way. Despite his ongoing pain and against all odds, Matt came back a year later to finish 6th in a competition of over 13,000 people. Ironically, that was the same race he did not finish due to the near-fatal crash. Because of Matt Russell’s tenacity, we are honored to have him connected to our law firm.
