Racing is live!

The first races of the 2014 Edmonton ITU Triathlon World Championships have taken place today. The aquathlons open proceedings, the same as last year in Hyde Park. This year I decided to miss it to focus on the tri, but my room mate for the week, Will Kirk, competed in the very first age-group race. He’s near the middle/front of the sweltering swim pen here…

And here’s the view of the start pontoon, yup, all the races have a running dive to begin!

Will was fourth in M20-24, just a few seconds off a medal. Hopefully some of his stupendous speed will rub off on me. 🙂

You can watch the age-group races as well as the elites live: go to http://www.triathlon.org/live for the player and schedule (I’m off at 10:20 on Friday, that’s 17:20 in the UK, finishing an hour and a bit later, fingers crossed).
