About Mike Melton:

I work for Emergency Medicine Professionals group in Central Florida. I got into endurance sports during my residency, because I didn't want to be a fat doctor. One thing lead to another, I became a triathlete that turned into an Ironman and ended up completing several Ironman distance races with my first in 2009. I attended the Ironman Sports Medicine Conference in 2010, and had such a great time at the conference as well as my experience with the med tent, I vowed to come back every year. I went on to help in the med tent at some of the local races in central Florida including the Florida Ironman 70.3. When it comes to this sport I don't think I do anything unique or different, I work overnights, I come home and meet up with my group to train. Like all of us Who do this crazy sport, I had Hoop Dreams of competing in the World Championship at Kona, So Words cannot describe how excited I am to have been given this chance to compete.
