What a great day at the worlds.
I helped out on the U23 races today, mainly athlete registration and the starting line. A great bunch of athletes. If they're they next wave, triathlon seems to be in good hands.
Special mentions to James Seear for his second place after coming out of the swim a little off the pace; and also for the two Josh Ambergers. Yes, two. One of his mates braved having Amberger brandished across his arse by wearing one of Josh's old speed suits. He also did his hair appropriately.
In age group action, the guy pictured didn't quite get his machine into transition today... He is obviously taking his pre race hydration seriously, carrying a mini carton of VB. And he's obviousy keen - already kitted up in his team uniform, race number and time trial helmet. (The Athletic Powerhouse usually refers to these as "wanker helmets").
In any case, good luck to all the Aussies competing tomorrow - in the OD age group, Para and Teams triathlon, and to Sticksy and Courtney in the Elite Men. And I guess also to my friend Craig, even though he's representing NZ...
