@idking90 Makes sense. The few “Pros” I know are just people that are fast and like to race in first wave ahead of slow AGers and pay only a small annual fee and get homestays. They do it to save money, not earn it.
I do think short-course pros are more like pros in other sports though since the top tier WTS athletes do seem to have triathlon as their job. The tie to Olympics and natl fed funding makes a difference.
One of those rare TRS podcasts, where I end up wishing I could get my time back. I was not impressed with him at all. After listening to his interview, it became clear to me why so few triathletes stepped up to support him after his incident in the middle east and the drama-rama about his claims of being jailed and paying "blood money." Happy to hear his son is doing better though. I donated $50 but given that he voted for Trump, I wish I could get the $50 and put it towards someone losing their Obamacare.
