    Strange denizens of the office

    Flexible working arrangements were a big 'selling point' when we were moved to our new building that is all open plan, smaller workstations etc (but they decided against hot desks). However, the only ones that seem to be able to access these arrangements are senior management. The same management that have onsite or nearby carparks that make it a lot easier to get to work than the rest of us who have been moved miles away from any train or bus station...

    Ironman WC moving or a typo?

    Why the move? was this after the road rage incident a few years back where someone pulled an axe on them after knocking AP off? B@W and Peter, where were you that day..?

    Is Ironman Busso Doomed?

    Wasnt the "in the vicinity" a 1km exclusion zone? that is all fine and well in a 30km point to point swim but a 1km circle at Busso would be the whole course wouldnt it...

    Commonwealth games chat.

    Was watching the 100m last night and it South Africans came first and 2nd but I couldnt pick a disability? The guy coming 4th had to run in a blindfold and with a guide? Not sure how they are matched up..? now just seen a table tennis layer is competing in both para and able bodied tournaments?

    Drugs in triathlon 1 in 7. Really?

    American article? I reckon it is rife over there.. maybe not "performance enhancing" for the sake of that but all their testosterone clinics etc it's a bigger issue than gun control

    Challenge Wanaka Full just got canned

    I did it first time in 2011 and it grew from then until the peak in 2013 before declining (2017 they offered really cheap entries and 2018 was the double points WC qualifier). My first two times there the place was buzzing with restaurants etc along the front full all afternoon (most closed for dinner as they’d been open since 5am). The last few times the Sunday afternoon buzz has gone with most restaurants packing up just after midday and the infrastructure all dismantled by 2pm.. I think that costs (entry and accommodation) are a factor but also now they have the pro races on Saturday there is no reason for people to stick around on Sunday afternoon.. This years pro races had barely anyone watching the womens as it starts when people are registering, checking bike in or having lunch. A few more watched the mens but the club tents were largely empty and definitely not the usual vibe of people having a few drinks after racing that morning.. I don’t see why they couldn’t do the pro races both on Sunday especially as they are currently sprint distance events.. Still my A race every year and love taking the family for a beach getaway although that might change when they start school..

    Swimming stroke question / discussion

    Yea agree with AP on that.. most people feel they're extending straight out from shoulder but are actually crossing to the other side.. very hard to get a high elbow strong pull whenyour arm is under the opposite shoulder...

    Challenge Wanaka Full just got canned

    That's a shame as it is a beautiful location. The course, especially the original and the weather were probably too hard for most but I would rather head over there for a race than to Port or Busso... I also dont give a frig about the MDot but I may be the minority...
