Four people will be inducted into the Ironman Hall of Fame this year: Former champions Erin Baker and Scott Molina, Ironman Australia founder Ken Baggs and Rocky Campbell, a long standing volunteer at the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
Baker won the Ironman World Championship in 1987 and 1990, two of the 104 races she won in her amazing career. (She entered 121 events all told, meaning she won 86% of the races she entered.) In addition to her Kona titles, Baker won the ITU world title and the ITU Duathlon World Championship.
Molina was renowned through the 1980s as a member of the "Big Four" that included competitors Dave Scott, Mark Allen and Scott Tinley. Like his wife, Baker, Molina will be remembered for winning more often then he didn't - he claimed over 100 pro titles, including the inaugural Ironman New Zealand race, the first Ironman event held outside of Hawaii, and the Ironman World Championship in 1988.
Baggs was one of the original members of the the committee that put on the inaugural Ironman Australia race in 1985 and became the race director of the event in 1987. He also founded Ironman Western Australia and was the race director of both races until 2012.
