I was privileged enough to go and watch the London Triathlon 2011 over the weekend, held at EXCEL. The slick organisation of the event was only outshone by the performance of those athletes taking part in the competition. A swim of 1500m, a bike of 40km and finishing with a run of 10km is quite an achievement and whilst the elite athletes are completing all three disciplines in a little over 2 hours, there were many spending well over twice that amount of time out on the course.
Wave after wave of athletes were set off in the water over the weekend and every single finisher was cheered in across the finish-line and presented with a well earned and deserved medal.
Well done to everyone: athletes, organisors, helpers and spectators, you should all be very proud of yourselves!!!
