I put in a query at my work as to whether we had sporting leave. They made me give them all the details, then said no 😫

When I went they said it would be paid if I was in the open team, but not for AG.

Apparently you can get up to 5 days of you work for the government if its - for the Olympics , Commonwealth Games or World Championships (conditions apply), but apparently AG Triathlon Championships meet the criteria.

Seems strange, but there you go.  

I might have a go for next year.  5 days free for my European holiday

Nuthin just had a couple weeks to consider things and my hearts just not in the shorter stuff.  Don' regret doing the qual races which were a lot of fun but I've got other goals on my plate which are more important for me right now 😊

I'm assuming your spot now goes to a first reserve? If so, there'll be one very happy vegemite out there.

You all know I can't make decisions, so......

Which one and WHY?  I need justification for your choice please, students.

Do you want a zip or no zip?  Do you want a big red sunburnt circle on your back?

One fits like togs on top. The other like a trisuit. 

What would you prefer?

I like the top half of the racer back but not the bottom half - think I'll go the zip back

When you look from behind, the 2nd suit has a fat arse. I'd go the first.

Soooo, who is ordering what from the uniform shop?  Apart from the race kit and the free kit, I might get the run singlet and the visor - mainly so I have stuff to swap for stuff from other countries. 

I'd love to know what others have done!

trisuit,

(free stuff)

a hat (for my shiny head)

some bike kit (coz I want to replace my current kit as it's from a supplier I have ethical objections to)

one of those green and yellow jackets (coz it's a nice colour change from my other one (in blue from '09 ) (and '91 just doesn't fit anymore))

and a supporters shirt for my daughter as she is awesome :)

Was tiding up in my shed today and came across my accounting of expenses (letter to my club (HBTC)) from the 1991 ITU Worlds  (Gold Coast) for comparison:

Uniform (togs, singlet, run shorts, nicks, casual shorts, tracksuit) ...........     $279.15

Optional parade hat (akubra style) ...........    $40

Optional Team Aus t-shirt ........       $15

Entry fees (inc: carbo and awards banquet tickets (the latter at the Casino), & quality sports bag full of goodies (still using! )) .....   $100

Accom - 1 night across the road from the venue (now Griffith Uni I think) ......    $60

total:......... $494.15

With the current suits and sizing being a bit on the small side, there are a few comments. Might not be a bad thing! 

Plus somehow we have navy blue shorts and a dark charcoal tee with a solitary green sleeve stripe.  Not the greatest match.

Wonder if we'll have to walk the 1.5km from transition to the swim start...  Bag drop at swim start is strange unless they plan on transporting the bags to transition.

it will be interesting navigating the corners in a draft legal race where I would assume a significant portion are unaccustomed to this sort of racing...
