  • I didn't know JF was helping the Italian federation with development. Amazing how much Italy has lagged behind its neighbors both in developing pros and growing the sport. I believe this is the first year. I didn't realize it at first. I just thoug…
  • @James Lange I was just on Filliol’s IG and realized I forgot that Jo Brown and Caroline Routier are JFT Crew too. My friends from the Mighty North might not forgive my oversight of Jo Brown. Swoory.
  • @James Lange I haven't found a full list but if you follow TZaferes and Drew Box on Instagram you'll see them all. At least the JFT Crew athletes. The work he does with the Italian athletes is often separate. These are the ones for sure that I see…
  • @Granpa Chook Re Murray, I was surprised he answered at all so I replayed because I was trying to see if there was more behind his answer. So, take this with a big grain of salt. Right before he answered a question about Murray, he answered a questi…
  • @James Lange I love the comment about a teardrop tattoo and Vincent Luis. His chest tattoo is ginormous so I wouldn't be surprised by a teardrop at this point. I totally agree about Blummenfelt too being his own worst enemy. He was in the Norweigan …
  • @AaronWebstey I just asked a close friend that grew up in Nova Scotia and he felt bad for not telling me about Dartmouth. He agreed I’d love it. Someday maybe I’ll check it out. What part of Stockholm are you staying? You are there at an interes…
  • *Spoilers* Fun watching the race last night. I really thought Katie had it and was really impressed with Holland coming back strong. Wish Katie would have won the championship but Holland definitely earned it. I wish the front bike group could hav…
  • Frodo should go back to his ITU build just because it was awesome. I'll never forget my wife seeing him in a speedo after a practice swim at HyVee years ago. I would kill to have a woman look at me like that. Has your wife seen Vincent Luis in h…
  • I hadn’t been following Yee. Very interesting. After Verzbicas, I can’t help but want a young kid to go the safer route. I am not a mom but am at that age where I swear I automatically think like a mom when I see young people making decisions.
  • @Matt Damn. Totally missed it.
  • Bergere was the favorite in the Men's u23 too and ended up 4th. Did you watch the live feed on Triathlonlive.tv/GoldCoast? Best part was seeing Reid’s parents wearing the crazy blonde wigs. I would love to go drink with them.
  • I am watching. I am a fan of so many ITU athletes that it is hard to pick a favorite. For women, I would love to see Katie Z win but would be happy with a handful of others. Same thing for the men’s race. If I have to choose, I will hope for a sweep…
  • Perhaps all the talk about eating disorders and injuries is to cover the true fear. Studies say coffee depletes the body of calcium and calcium deficiencies can lead to stress fractures. What would endurance athletes do without their coffee? (Says t…
  • It is a beautiful city built on 14 Islands where one of their biggest lakes (Mälaren) meets the Baltic sea. Over 50 bridges. Super easy to get around with subway and tons of bike lanes separated from auto traffic. Add in a tradition known as “fika” …
  • I lived in Sweden for 5 years including 4 summers in Stockholm. Do you miss it? Yes. Very much. Stockholm is my favorite city in the world. And how can I not miss the country that started swimrun? ???? (Full disclosure: I actually went to ötillö a…
  • @AaronWebstey if you need to know about Sweden, you need @Jennifer Post! Yes. Happy to help with any info you need. I lived in Sweden for 5 years including 4 summers in Stockholm.
  • Bezos is still an ass but thankful for his $2b pledge for philanthropic work. https://money.cnn.com/2018/09/13/technology/jeff-bezos-homeless-fund/index.html
  • Well Jodie had a well documented eating disorder, so likely she was referring to that. Yep. Realize that. Still remember Cal offering her the downstairs bathroom if she wanted to eat a second cupcake during his segment with her and her response to h…
  • Hah! That’s the point of a good sub-tweet. Vagueness to keep people guessing but the intended target usually knows. Sometimes sub-tweets are super easy to identify. For example, Merriam-Webster’s Trump sub-tweets. Personally, I prefer the more obs…
  • Why do you think that has to do with Frodo? Just due to chatter about how skinny he looked at WC 70.3 and possible eating disorder and now out of Kona. But, more likely, not directed at him. More likely the usual talk about many of the athletes s…
  • @bbculp @fyrehaar You are likely right. I’d still love to see it though. No one comes close to his pain face with snot and slobber. Heh. Slight shift in topic. Is Jodie sub-tweeting (sub-IGing) Frodeno or is it just a coincidence?
  • Also, Frodo is hands-down the best triathlete in history. The double of Olympics/Kona is the holy grail. Although at some point we'll have to put Gomez ahead of him due to sheer number of world titles. I agree Gomez will be put ahead of Frodeno a…
  • I wish I had the knowledge of an orthopedist at times like these. I looked at the scan and I understand so little. Anyone have an expert opinion or have seen one posted? I am just curious how severe the fracture is, if there are signs of it being re…
  • Most “pro” triathletes would earn more working fulfillment jobs in Seattle with the $15 hr minimum wage.
  • Interesting. I remember @EmilyCocks comment on the preview show before WC70.3 that he had arrived one day later than planned and she wondered what was up with that. In hindsight, I wonder if he was dealing with his hip injury then but went ahead and…
  • When you want to protest but can’t afford a new pair of shoes. Perfect poster boy for one of the “poorly educated” Trump loves. Bonus points for the ill-fitting cargo pants too.
  • Had to bring this thread up again now that Island House Tri and athletes are promoting the race video now on YouTube. WITH commercials embedded. WTH? Are they just trying to earn what little money they can with an old program or is it part of prom…
  • Hard to beat a 9-lane competition temp 50m pool all to myself. I do not miss the swim team practicing in 8 lanes next to me.
  • I am impressed with Potts. My guess was Rinny and/or TO said no. I was just reviewing the squad for this year. Really interesting to see how many are out for injury or just not performing this season. Is it too early to talk about a BE13 curse ala…
