Status of Lake Placid Ironman still unclear

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (WCAX) This year's Lake Placid Ironman still may not take place, but it has the proper state approval if it does happen.

Legislation is needed each year to help the Ironman succeed. Sen. Betty Little, R-Queensbury and Assemblyman Dan Stec, R-Queensbury, sponsored a bill that would allow out-of-state health care professionals to take care of athletes competing in the challenging event whenever the event may be held this year.

Stec says the bill, which has been approved by the Legislature, will allow for flexibility in rescheduling at a later date.
