urlSwimmer and Ironman champion Ky Hurst, and his partner Katie Lander, welcomed their first child on November 17 and have named their son Koa.

Ky has two silver medals in the World Swimming Championships, and has competed at two Olympics in marathon swimming. He has won four Australian Ironman titles, and is a member of the Surf Life Saving Australia Hall of Fame. He has also been a competitor on Dancing with the Stars.

Koa is a name which was featured on the blog this year at popular request, and seems a perfect fit with Ky and Katie.
