Here’s a collection of triathlon related links I found this week, in case you didn’t see them when I tweeted them.
There are visually impaired triathletes who race with the help of a guide. Guiding another person through a three stage race is challenging, and to my knowledge these people get training with their partners on how to get it done. Chad Nikazy, while a competent triathlete, seems to have decided to become a guide for a paratriathlete pretty much up and out of the blue. Read his awesome story in two parts: Part 1 and Part 2.
Did you know the Olympics are on soon? Of course, the coverage is non-stop, and there’s a lot of focus on London, the city. I thought this was a cute travel article for triathletes - a way to see a bit of the city via a swim, bike, run: Explore London With Your Own DIY Triathlon
Canada’s Flag Bearer at London 2012 is Simon Whitfield. He’s getting a lot of attention, but I like the fact that only days before the games, he goes to the inaugural Toronto Triathlon Festival to promote the sport and even competes in the Sprint event. Here’s a little video of him talking about the sport - what a nice, down-to-earth guy.
