Apple triathalon organizers worry over Ironman

It's official. The city of Kelowna has announced it's putting in a bid for the Ironman Triathlon.

The event is up for grabs, now that the race has wrapped up its run in Penticton.

If Kelowna's bid is accepted, the city will find itself hosting two triathlons every summer, possibly on back to back weekends.

Richard Montgomery, president of the Apple triathalon event, explains his concerns to Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
