ITU World Champs; Mathematics of weight loss; "100 Meters" film,
Here is your weekly TT Times update:
Weekend Race Report-
- The ITU (draft legal) Sprint World Championship was held on the Gold Coast of Australia last Wednesday. In a promising sign of the talent coming through the ranks, the men's top 6 competitors were all in the 16-19 age group category. Michelle Dillon, who's impressive professional career was halted by a double fusion of her spine 10 years ago, won the women's race. Results here.
- The Elite (olympic distance) ITU race was held yesterday, also on the Gold Coast. Ashleigh Gentle used the home field advantage to win the women's race in a sprint finish over Vicky Holland. Vincent Luis won the men's race over his training partner, Mario Mola. Mola's second place finish was enough to secure his place as the series champion- his 3rd time winning the honor, making him one of the most decorated draft-legal triathletes of all time.
Events We're Looking Forward To-
The Ironman World Championships are just under a month away on October 13th. Jan Frodeno, who won the 70.3 World Championships just over a week ago, has pulled out of the Ironman World Championships due to a hip stress fracture.
Training Thoughts and Updates-
The new shop is coming along nicely. Still lots to do: this week we hope to finish painting the interior walls, build out some storage space in an elevator shaft, and begin repairing the exterior siding.

As Jan Frodeno has recently shown us, we can't always control the highs
of life, but we can always control our attitude.

If you have a few moments to spare-
Few people have heard of the Spanish film "100 Meters
", but I can't recommend it enough. You can find it on Netflix.
Have a great week!
