By ANTONIO OLIVERO - Staff Writer (aolivero@adirondackdailyenterprise.com) , Lake Placid News

LAKE PLACID - More than 2,500 athletes took part in Sunday's 19th annual Ironman Lake Placid.

And whether international, such as triathlon professional and record-breaking champion Brent McMahon of Victoria, British Columbia, or local, such as women's amateur champion Amy Farrell of Tupper Lake, competitors chased greatness on the 140.6-mile course Sunday.

But where exactly are some of the farthest expanses from which competitors descended on this Adirondack mountain village? And which American states and nearby Canadian provinces produced the most Ironmen and Ironwomen Sunday?
