31 January 2010: New World record for Triathlon....

The rain here kept me indoors on the wind trainer this morning for a punishing session. While I was riding away in the garage I had the morning TV news on and caught the latest World Record set in the sport of triathlon and possibly breaking a number of other world records too: a triathlon in Sydney for kids aged 7-15 with over 2800 racers!!!! Even more amazing though than these numbers is that the athletes there promoting the event and encouraging kids to have a go in "the greatest event for kids in the world" and "the best sport activity you could get your kids into" were top cricketers, surf lifesavers etc -  two of the most prominent and popular sports in Australia. Not really sure what that says about their sports but pretty good for triathlon to have that many kids out there.
